My Begonias look beautiful full of flowers the problem is we are going away from the 7th September and don't return until 16th December.
This is only my second year of growing this particular plant and did not want to loose them.
Last year cleaned up the tubers and took them in during October and over wintered indoors.
I have lovely neighbours but one side they are not gardeners and the other side although gardeners are very elderly with health problems.
Thanks everyone

Lift, dry and store.

Should I do this just before we go in September?

Yes. It'll give them time to dry out. Do what you did last year - that seemed to work ok didn't it. A month earlier won't make much difference. smile
