5 Begonia Jumbo Plug Plants (T12764)
10 Begonia Jumbo Plug Plants (T44319)

Flowering Months
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.
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.

Fantastically prolific and beautiful. 2014-11-10

I planted five of these in the top of one of those large easy-fill baskets to provide some firey over flow, with some trailing blue lobelias in the top row of windows and some petunias in the bottom. Sadly the lobelias 'burnt out' towards mid-summer and the petunias never really did take off. However, the bergonias lasted and are still looking wonderful now (October) covering the entire basket. I also go a view volunteer vegetable plants (one heritage 'white' cucumber and a tomatoe plant I just noticed last week) and honestly the cucmber volunteer didn't look out of place at all. It spiraled around the basket, using the begonias as a support It's a shame they're not tuberous, else I'd save the corms and replant next year. I'll probably try to overwinter a few cuttings but I wonder, will saved seeds from this 'inferno' variety come true to type or is this a (F1) hybrid? (Sorry for seeking ways to avoid buying more from you T&M. ;-))

T&M replied on 2014-10-13: Thank you for your review. Although the Begonia Inferno is not supplied as a tuber, you can lift the Begonia and overwinter it in a greenhouse or sheltered area. After the Begonia has flowered in its second season, a tuber will form which will allow you to preserve the Begonia for future seasons.

Amazing 2014-10-18

What a plant, Planted 5 to a basket and they went berserk cascading 3ft plus, full of bright orange flowers which just stayed on the plant and I did not dead head until late September will be growing these again.

Buy and buy again. 2014-04-29

I bought these last year and they flowered their socks off with an amazing vibrant colour. Low maintenance for such as stunning display. I just placed my order for this year. Great for cheering you up on the gloomiest day.

Too small and damaged 2014-04-14

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.

T&M replied on 2014-04-15: Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your recent purchase. If you would like to contact our Customer care team on, one of our agents will be happy to investigate this matter further.

Wow 2014-02-06

I got 5 of these last year and they performed wonders in my garden. True to the care instructions; they are low maintenance but the flowers were in abundance. I didn't bother with them at the end of the season but they seem to be coming back this year. How wonderful. Give them a go.

T&M replied on 2014-06-02: Thank you for your review. I hope we can continue to be of service.

Every garden should have! 2014-01-21

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!

T&M replied on 2014-02-12: Thanks for your kind words

can I propagate these for next year

A must buy 2013-02-09

These plants are amazing. So easy to care for and look absolutely stunning.

Interesting 2011-10-07

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.

Wonderful plants! 2011-05-11

I am a beginner in the gardening art and I started with a right partners. Thank you very much for such a beautiful plants!

It is November outside, my Emma Elizabeth is 5 months old and your wonderful begonia Inferno plants are still flowering making our house special! I simply fall in love with them!

Begonia Inferno 2010-10-11

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.
