Splitting Begonias

Zone Bedford | Valerie's added on March 13, 2014 | Answered

I have just found the answer to whether I can split my double begonias which have now now grown huge, but I don't have sulphur powder. Is there an alternative I can use to dust my double begonia tubers with once they have been split?
