Begonia x tuberhybrida 'Patio Apricot Shades Improved' F1 Hybrid (Pre-Planted Pot)

Half-hardy Perennial

For hassle-free gardening, look no further than our pre-planted pots for easy summer-long colour. We're always on the look out for ways to make life simpler for our gardening customers. So what could be easier than pots which are already planted up? We've taken the hard work out of creating wonderfully colourful displays - just order our pre-planted pots of your favourite varieties and position them where you'll most enjoy their summer colour. Then all you need to do is water them and wait!

Begonia 'Patio Apricot Shades' is equally good as our best selling trailing version. With the same weather resistant blooms and fabulous flower power, this specially selected patio variety has a more upright habit making it better suited to patio containers. Perfect for brightening up your patio this summer in sun or shade, come rain or shine. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 35cm (14").
Patio pot diameter: 33cm (13in). 12.7 litres.

Culinary note: Add the bright coloured petals to sandwiches or salads for a light lemon taste and crisp texture. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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 the single female begonia flowers to encourage more of the large double male flowers to be produced and to extend the flowering period.
