Being the not so expert gardener and forgetful to check its preferences, I  put my begonias in full glare of the sun which I now know a few don't like..

Here are my 3 begonias

I put them in multi purpose compost. They are getting most of direct sunlight through the day.

You have answered you own question-got them in a more shaded spot-perhaps a sheltered wall outside??-but protect on cold nights

my begonias haven't come up yet 

not sure what i'm doing wrong, but they're in a sun room on the front of my house, should they be in shade?

@Lazy gardener

I suppose I did, but wasn't sure if it was a disease or not

I have put two in a hanging basket where it gets 2 hours max in the sun and the rest in shade. Unfortunatly one of the begonias roots had rotted when I got it out where it was planted. Fingers crossed they live now.

Would it hurt to give them some tomato feed to boost them up?
