Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Begonia 'Truffle Cream' will bring a new dimension to your hanging baskets and patio containers this summer; large outer petals unravel to reveal a cluster of tufted 'truffle' central petals, much like unwrapping a tasty chocolate! They'll bloom all summer long, until the autumn frosts take hold.

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 Begonia plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new 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. They can be transplanted into their final containers once they have increased in size. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise Begonia's 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.
