Begonia help wanted PLEASE - I got a nice surprise last weekend on checking my bedding begonia corms - which had been stored in a box of dry sawdust in the spare room for the winter. I found they were very health & had nice young shoots starting. I planted them up into trays of compost last weekend with only the bottoms sitting on damp compost - I haven't burried them at all or put compost around the sides or tops - is this correct ? Can someone please adivse how I get them growing & how to care for them - The bottoms are now starting to soften - is this normal as they start to absorb the moisture & take root ? Do I just spray around them with a fine mist to keep them moist (& not get water on the tops) ? I have them in the polytunnel rather than the greenhouse at the moment but as there is a lot of condensation in the tunnel there are quite a few water droplets falling onto them - would they be better in the greenhouse ?
