over wintering geraniums, but it appears I have a green thumb when it comes to begonias.
Last year I bought this lovely Bonfire begonia and at the end of the season I decided to see if I would have any luck in over wintering it.
About three weeks ago I began giving the plant a very little water, then just last week I noticed a very tiny bud had appeared. The past few days the plant has grown at an astonishing rate.
As the Bonfire begonia is growing on one side of the pot, I have planted this yellow begonia on the opposite side so it won't look so lopsided.
I think several hanging pots of begonias will look lovely surrounding the shaded front entry into our house, so here is a photo of the packet of begonias I have chosen to grow in the second hanging pot.
I have had success in overwintering Amaryllis but that is a post for another day.
