Edd, I am using Chrome on the android. Also on laptop which does have adblock plus installed by me. I dont think you can use it on tablets, maybe another adblocker?

That was a bit earlier, I only did mine just over a week ago, they have tiny buds now.Have you left the top of the corm uncovered and not too wet. Its warming up now, although not at nights, so they may make a start soon. 

You could lift them and make sure they are not squaggy. (If they are, they are no good)  ,then just lay them on top of the compost again.

Edd, every so often I go through every app removing cookies, is that good enough. Adblock doesnt work on the Tablet,

Put them further back.

 I start mine off in any old rubish compost from old plant pots, used seed compost, etc, start off in seed trays with the compost just around the edge of the corm, not on the top where the shoots will come from.

I store the old compost in a bag through the year and  use for starting off begonia corms and dahlias tubers,  pot on in good compost when shoots are about 3 to 4  inches tall.

Thats what we call a 'bog garden' lovely for primulas and other wet loving plants, 

I had to top mine up this week, water level dropped by 4 inches. No amount of rain is going to fill that up.

Have you begonia corms made a start yet Lynn.?


Posted: Yesterday at 12:11

Thanks everyone... the next question would they sound a bit tender and fickle and here is just not the place for fickle..would they stand up to acid soil, high altitudes 960ft and always windy.

As I have 25.00 to spend, world I be better off with something else?

Meomye..sorry to hi jack your thread xx
