Begonia plugs can be planted straight into flower pouches but are best potted on first and grown on in bright, frost-free conditions if they are to be displayed in baskets, window boxes, pots and beds. Begonia plants can be transplanted into their final containers once they have increased in size. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise begonia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before placing them in their final positions. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is protected from strong winds.
Feed and water Begonia plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new begonia flower buds to drop. Deadhead faded begonia flowers regularly to extend the flowering period and encourage more blooms to be produced.

Begonia revival or what?
By Dinah Dayus 02-03-2014
Inspired by a few adverts on T&M's website I decided to try to find the begonia tubers that I had free from T&M on an offer a few years ago. They were fantastic when I planted them, but having had a break from gardening I hadn't bothered with them in subsequent years (had actually forgotten where I left the pots). I found them in the semi-outdoor area commonly known as "behind the shed". I though "no way, these are not going to be there let alone be alive". I emptied the pot and found 3 live and healthy tubers of about 4-5 inches diameter. I think they may have been the 'Apricot shades', or they might have been called something like 'Oranges and Lemons' - but you will know which ones because they came free as a special offer. Talk about a begonia revival!! I can hardly wait to confirm their identity. I've put them in really good compost, and am going to feed them and not forget them this time!
