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.

  1. Nice container plant.

    By Marjorie Kellington 14-10-2015

    The plants got off to a rather slow start after receiving them in March. All the plants were in perfect condition, however, I lost a few during the coming weeks. This must have been down to me, I must have got the watering wrong because the plants were in the greenhouse in a heated propagator without a cover, so should have been warm enough. Anyway, the majority survived and put on a lovely display. In general I thought the colours seemed a bit more subtle than the trailing apricot shades, so they blend well if you want to put with other plants in the tubs. Would buy again and take a bit more care.
