Begonia tubers – three weeks further on

Really getting a shift on now:



All doing well now, even the one on the left whose main leaf I knocked off by accident (oops!). I’m still keeping them indoors at the moment because the weather has been very up and down and I’m not wanting to cause any checks to growth. I’ll give it another few days then start the hardening off process ready for planting outside in containers at the beginning of June.

As for my large tuber, it is finally getting going:


I was beginning to think that nothing was going to happen because the shoots that had started into growth seemed to have simply stopped in their tracks, but I potted it up anyway and that appears to have given it a shove. Mind you, at the rate it’s going I’m not expecting flowers any time soon – November, probably!
