Repotting Begonias in My Greenhouse

I have long loved begonias - with their bold, beautiful foliage and delicate flowers, it’s hard to resist such an amazing family of plants.

There are thousands of species and varieties of begonias. Some are classified as tuberous, and others as fibrous, but it’s the rhizomatous begonias that make beautiful houseplants all year long because of the amazing colors, shapes, sizes, and textures of their foliage. During the winter months, the plants flower, but they are mostly prized for their extravagant greenery. Last week, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, potted up several new specimens for my collection.
