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 plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new begona 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.

DO NOT OVER WATER. DO NOT GIVE UP. KEEP GOING AND REPORT BACK TO CUSTOMER SERVICES TO GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO REPLACE PLANTS DAMAGED OR DRIED OUT IN TRANSIT.

PLEASE CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO CARE FOR MY PLANTS FROM NOW?
WILL THEY RE-GROW NEXT YEAR?
