Begonia – Overwintering

Q: I have overwintered some angel wing begonias. When I move them back outside, do I cut all the old growth off?

A: If the existing leaves are not brown, you can leave them on the plant until night temperatures are in the 50’s. Then you can take it to a spot that provides bright shade outdoors. Fertilize it, wait a couple of weeks for new leaves to appear, then cut off the old leaves to shape the plant attractively.
