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.

Too small and damaged
By Candida Eldridge 14-04-2014
Received these plugs today after they have been in transit five days. Leaves all fell off when I opened the box. The plug may be big but the plants are only an inch tall. Very disappointing. Not sure if they will survive.

Can't wait to see these flowers in full bloom again in my garden. What a delight there were last year, vibrant, fiery red that just bloomed and bloomed. I would highly recommend as I would Thompson and Morgan, who are such a great friendly business with fantastic, quality flowers and exceptional customer service. To new customers - ENJOY!
Thanks for your kind words

Begonia Inferno Review
By Susan Wake 28-08-2011
Extremely pleased with the plants, the flowers are magnificent and make a wonderful hanging basket display

I had no problems with the jumbo plugs. All survived and thrived well. I like this plant because it's "pointy" ! Very good colour. They come on much earlier than the Begonia Apricot Shades so a nice early begonia. I would buy again.

I too was disappointed with my initial order of Begonia Inferno. They arrived completely waterlogged. Consequently only 2 out of the 5 could be saved. But as usual with Thompson & Morgan`s customer service department, they have offered to replace all of them. I have grown these before, so I know eventually the replacements will grow into a beautiful display.
Thank you once again to Thompson & Morgan, and in particular to their helpful customer service dept!!

I was very dissapointed with the 1st lot of jumbo plants as they were of 2nd grade quality, I spoke to T & M who arranged for another set to be sent to me, these were top class, they grew & grew & grew, infact here we are 10/11 & they are still blooming, I would highly recommend these I had so many comments from neighbours. I will certainly order these again, & no dead heading, just an occassional sweep up.
