If the man next door was told to wait five years, then thats what I would do. No point in paying 450.00 to be told the same thing,

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?

Begonias/ seeds and greenhouse problems -

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.
