Hi:

My friend and I have both had the same problem with our begonias. They were growing beautifully with big, gorgeous blooms ... then suddenly, large blooming sections fall off. When you look, it's like they rotted or were sorts of "strangled" and then the blooms and leaves of the section affected would fall off. I can't see a bug ... and they haven't been overwatered at all. What do you think the probelm/solution is? I didn't have this situation last year.

Thanks for your help.

Were they grown outdoors or in? Mine were affected from all the rain we've been having.

My friend's was on her front deck, uncovered ... but mine was on a front veranda, covered ... but getting partial sun/shade. I know it wasn't overwatered ... so I'm not sure what happened. Also, the other two pots of begonias beside it are OK ( so far ). Although ... even though all three pots hold the same variety of begonia ... one is very leggy, looking like it's standing on tip-toes ... while the other two are fine ( except for the hunk that fell off, of course). Oh dear. Maybe begonias aren't for me this year!
