Begonias

Anonymous added on April 23, 2014 | Answered

I have grown some begonias from corms and they have sent up one shoot, which is now getting long. Should I cut them back to encourage them to bush out or leave them growing as a single stem? I think they may be trailing plants, if there are such things, but not sure. Thank you.

    Yes, pinching plants back will normally help them become fuller and encourage a more compact, bushier growth.
