  • Sought after rarity at everyday prices
  • Upright compact plants
We're pleased to offer you limited quantities of a very special garden begonia. Each bloom appearing on Begonia 'Moonwalker' is a work or art, with no two blooms the same. Large scarlet red flowers with white marbling, echo the style of the historical variety B. Marmorata. These elegant upright bushy begonia plants are perfect for patio containers in sun or shade. Don't assume an exclusive variety has to fetch an exclusive price tag. We are able to produce our young plants from seed, significantly cutting our production costs, allowing us to offer the home gardener quality plants at excellent value. Make your begonia plantings stand out from the crown with the showy blooms of 'Moonwalker'. Height 30cm (12"). Spread 25cm (10").

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.

Flowering Months
Feed and water plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new flower buds to drop. Deadhead the single female flowers to encourage more of the large double male flowers to be produced. At the end of the growing season the leaves and stems will yellow and fall off naturally. Reduce watering to prevent begonia plants from rotting at this stage. When the stems have all dropped away, dig out the tubers. Clean and dry them before storing them away in peat or sand at 7-15C (45-60F) until they can be replanted next February.
Pot up Begonia plug plants into 9cm pots and grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions, away from direct sun. They 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 planting them in their final positions in containers, beds and borders. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is protected from strong winds.
