Sowing

Sow Laurentia seed on the surface of a good quality seed compost from January to March. Make sure that the compost is moist but not wet. Place in a propagator at 15-21C (59-70F) or seal in a clear polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into 8cm (3”) pots and grow on in cooler conditions at 10C (50F).

When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days and transplant them into their final positions in container, beds and borders. Plant Laurentia in full sun in any moist, well drained soil.

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
Caution

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes
