Tuberous begonias are slow to get going. Some gardeners start them inside in February to compensate since they can't be planted out until after the frost free date. Be patient and keep the soil damp but not wet. More care tips are in the linked article. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/begonia/tuberous-begonia-care.htm
