I have lovely healthy strong begonia plants but no flowers! I kept the corms from last year and replanted them when they just showed growth. Any answers?

Lack of flowers is often a sign of excessive nitrogen in the soil, or deficiency of another nutrient, especially phosphorus. Another problem could be if you accidentally dug up the corms too early last year, before they were done storing energy using their leaves.
