Begonias Bulbs Are Preferred Over Seeds

Begonia bulbs are favored by shade gardeners. Begonia bulbs are much stronger than seed-grown types, which can be fussy, fragile and small. Begonias have staying power and can be grown for many, many years. Begonia bulbs should be lifted and stored during the cold months. By storing your bulbs during the winter months, you are almost guaranteed that these regal bulbs will never relinquish their titles as the “Queens of Shade.”
