Begonia grandis subsp. evansiana

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 08:28:26 PST
Dear Brian,
knowing well your climate I would be tempted to "sow" them in some good compost and overwinter in a cold greenhouse, or a frost free window sill, just in case of a bad winter.
Here they eventually petered out through comptetion with other plants I think.
It got too dry and poor for them no doubt.
I have always struggled to keep it going as it needs richer moister soil than I can usually find for it.
Kind regards,

Do I "sow" now or spring or store, how, how deep etc. If I had not gone to a meeting last week on Gesneriads, some of which produce numerous propagules, I would not have recognised them for what they are. Found them falling on a pot of Anemones pavonina trying to flower.
