If you love using containers in your garden or if you are strictly a container gardener, you will appreciate knowing that the tuberous Begonia in Colorado does very well. I have a large covered front porch. My property also includes a lot of trees. As a result, I have quite a bit of shade in my garden. I need a few flowers that do well on my porch and under my shade trees. Tuberous begonia is one of my go to plants. Here is one that was growing in my garden in 2011.
But here is the problem. To buy a flowering Begonia at a nursery is going to set you back about $6.99 for each plant. Yikes! But there is a way around this high cost. Let me show you how.
