It's not that we weren't satisfied with the success of our best-seller, Begonia 'Apricot Shades', but we decided to try hand-blending an 'improved' version. You can expect a broader range of colours and 50% more colour-edged picotees from Begonia 'Apricot Shades Improved' - which means you'll enjoy even more non-stop stunning colour and impact in your garden.

Begonia 'Apricot Shades Improved' is as versatile as it is beautiful! Large, cascading, double blooms will pour from your containers from June to October. You'll be enjoying gorgeous flowers in shades of apricot and orange that reach 6-10cm (2.5-4") in diameter all summer and well into autumn. These tuberous begonias will perform whatever the weather and can be placed in sunny or semi shaded positions. The abundant trailing habit of Begonia Apricot Shades Improved makes them a great value plant for hanging baskets, window boxes and Flower Pouches™, giving you a really impressive display that will light up even a shady corner.

Begonia x tuberhybrida 'Apricot Shades Improved' F1 Hybrid Garden Ready Essentials Kit comprises of: 2 x 30cm BloomAround Hanging Baskets, 1 x 25 litre incredicompost® and 1 x garden snips.

Garden Ready Plants - Our garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery. We send them to you 'green' ahead of flowering (but please note some varieties may show a few blooms), which means plants will establish quickly and all their energy goes into producing better roots, so they produce more flowers throughout the season.

Pre-planted Pots & Baskets - Look no further than our pre-planted baskets and baskets for easy summer-long colour. We're always on the look out for ways to make life simpler for our gardening customers, so what could be easier than a hanging basket or pot which are already planted up? We've taken the hard work out of creating wonderfully colourful displays - just order our pre-planted baskets of your favourite varieties and position them where you'll most enjoy their summer colour. Then all you need to do is water them and wait!

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 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.
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.
