March: Tuberous Begonias

Start tuberous begonia tubers indoors about 6 weeks before the last frost date.  Place them in a shallow container filled with a growing medium that is porous but moisture retentive and does not contain fertilizer or manure.  Coarse sphagnum moss, peat moss or a good potting mix will all work.  Completely cover the tubers with the growing medium.  Keep the growing medium moist but not soggy.  Place the container in a warm spot with filtered sunlight.
