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.

  2. 1st batch, 6 still alive

    By Andrea Crewe 11-05-2014

    Only 6 still alive, ordered another batch (more fool me) they only just arrived and are also dying off, last year I had some fantastic plants, this year I am having a very bad time, no replies to my e-mails has changed me from a normally calm none complainer into a raging fed up customer refusing to let it go. I guess it's off to the local garden center to buy some living plants.
