Hi, my first post, can anyone help ? I have planted my begonia corms(inside) they are starting to shoot, but was wondering if i've left it too late to cut the corms up to make new plants ? Is there another way to propergate them ? They are the large apricot type . Thanks for any help

Hi Helen, wait till the shoots are a bit bigger and cut them(the shoots, not corm) and put them in pots after dipping them in rooting powder. Then stoik a plastic bottle on top, like RD. They will take very easily. Good luck

You can still divide them -not sure how?-look here near the beginning of the programme

Thank you, i'll do that. Last year i cut the corms into 3, it worked very well,but i did it before i planted them,and wasn't sure, so thanks again
