Begonia x tuberhybrida 'Apricot Shades Improved' F1 Hybrid (Pre-planted Basket)

Half-hardy Perennial

  • Hassle-free gardening with pre-planted baskets
  • Cascading radiant colour
  • Keeps blooming - whatever the weather
  • Extra-large double flowers
  • Our best-seller just got better!
It's not that we weren't satisfied with the success of our best-seller, Begonia 'Apricot Shades', but we decided to try hand-blending an 'improved' version. You can expect a broader range of colours and 50% more colour-edged picotees from Begonia 'Apricot Shades Improved' - which means you'll enjoy even more non-stop stunning colour and impact in your garden.

Begonia 'Apricot Shades Improved' is as versatile as it is beautiful! Large, cascading, double blooms will pour from your elegant hanging basket from July to October. You'll be enjoying gorgeous flowers in shades of apricot and orange that reach 6-10cm (2.5-4") in diameter all summer and well into autumn. These tuberous begonias will perform whatever the weather and can be placed in sunny or semi shaded positions. The abundant trailing habit of Begonia Apricot Shades Improved gives you a really impressive display that will light up even a shady corner.

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.



Look no further than our pre-planted baskets 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 hanging baskets which are already planted up? We've taken the hard work out of creating wonderfully colourful displays - just order our pre-planted baskets 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!

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.

    I received my pre planted begonias today. I am very pleased with my order. They are really beautiful, the pot alone is worth the money you pay. They came perfectly packed in a very strong box. ;-) I would like to say don't hesitate to buy from Thompson And Morgan you won't be disappointed . Sue Walker Doncaster
