Will this begonia tuber ever sprout? The wait seems endless. I bought a lot of them from Thompson and Morgan and they just sit. They're in some John Innes no 1 plus a bit of sand mixed in, planted just on the surface. If I buy plug plants instead then they get their leaves growing straight away. Does choosing to buy tubers rather than plugs mean a later start in the season where flowering is concerned? Will they altogether take longer to get going?
