Question on begonia tubers
I received as a gift 6 tubers. When I unpacked them 2 had sprouted. I was under the assumption that the root sprouts first, but have had other opinions as to the sprout being the "flower " and hence should plant it sprout up.
As I have only ever bought the "plant" my experience is very limited on tubers.

So I throw this out to the experts.

Sprout UP or sprout DOWN [dunno]

Sybil, plant them with the sprout up. On the tubers that are not sprouted, one side of the tuber has a should have a depression while the other is more rounded. Plant these tubers with the depression up.
