I grow Illumination begonias and they do make very small corms  I try to keep them over winter and usually manage a reasonable proportion to grow on the next year- it is worth a go

Jean - I hate wasps ,too  I have been stung quite a few times  I love Bees though

We are in the middle of a storm - I can only count to 3 after the lightening before the thunder  and it is absolutely tipping it down !

Plum crumble with custard it is then

Jean This is what I do with my begonias - the ones in pots have their foliage cut down to about 6" then they are put on their sides in their pots in the greenhouse and when the foliage dies and falls off I clean the tubers up and store them in kitchen paper in a box keeping them somewhere cool and dry.You could leave the tubers in the baskets -after cutting the foliage back a bit -and put them somewhere to dry off before storing This seems to work for me but others may have different ideas  I am probably being very thick - no change there then - but what are the horrible little stripey things,please?

How can I post a seedling?

Becks - Wrap a piece of damp kitchen paper around the roots and put the root ends in a freezer bag and secure with a rubber band. I have posted bigger things in a pringles tube - if it fits in a smarties tube you could put it in that then inside a padded envelope maybe  I save the plastic trays that plants arrive in from the seed companies- they can be useful,too
