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 flower buds to drop. Deadhead faded begonia flowers regularly to extend the flowering period and encourage more blooms to be produced.

  1. Huge Plants

    By bijal mistry 18-10-2015

    These plants really came into their own from August onwards. They were dripping with flowers and not affected by the weather, hot, cold or rainy. Currently in mid October the plants have more flowers than at any point in the summer with no sign of giving up. I certainly will be growing these again next year

  2. Fantastic plants

    By Edward Milledge 01-09-2015

    As said earlier they were slow to start, I have them in large troughs, now they are 30cm high and still growing, I will buy more next year, for me and my friends, the leaves alone are eye catching.
