I've got a white, pink, purple and blue Buzz and have planted them as a group in the garden. Will prune them around April. We can get down to -20°C, usually in February, so hope they survive.
Not just May, but last year as well!
Sounds like a lot of hard work to me. Why not make raised beds, you can make them any shape/hight/depth you want, order topsoil to fill them.
I agree Verdun and second the motion, G'day Forkers!
Mrs. G, just Google Adblock Plus, then open that and install following the instructions. Very easy, free, and NO MORE ADS!
Oh, and good morning everyone, have a good day.
It's advertising, but still good advice. As we're hardly likely to buy roses from Kuala Lumpur, ignore the advertising and take the advice!
Waterbutts, I guess you learnt to say "chuchichäschtli"!
I suggest one of these

Jazzy, your begonias will have corms. As soon as the first frost blackens the stems, remove them from the compost and remove the stems from the corms (round slightly flat bulbs). Let them dry thoroughly and dust off any soil, then wrap them in newspaper and store them in a paper bag or carton box in a dry, cool place. Check them occasionally and remove any soft/rotting ones. Late March or April pot them up again and put them outside after the last frost, usually mid May.
