    You can save begonias over the winter. Just need adequate light and water.

    Take the following steps to save your potted tuberous begonia tubers: Remove plant from pot before hard frosts occur. Cut back most of the top of the plant, leaving the ball of roots and soil intact. Place in a dry, cool storage area (a basement or garage) and allow the tubers to cure for several weeks.

    Hi Diane: I bring mine, which are in pots, inside and put them in the garage. If it's a sunny day and not too cold, I will take them outside for a couple of hours. Water them sparingly, maybe a cup a month, so the roots don't dry out. If yours are in the ground, replant them in pails from the dollar store, with adequate soil, and they should be fine. Good luck

    Hi Diane. I had some that were a bulb that I was able to keep. Not sure if you have the same type. I dug them up and stored them in the basement in a brown paper bag with peat moss, and replanted in spring. Good Luck!
