Plug plants are ideal for flower pouches. Plant begonia plugs directly into pouches or grow them on for transplanting into baskets and containers later on. Grow on in a warm frost free position.
When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise Begonia plants to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10 day period. Feed and water plants frequently. Deadhead faded Begonia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. When stems blacken with first autumn frost, remove Begonia tubers from their containers. Wash and dry the tubers then store over winter in peat or sand, in a cool but frost free position. Replant tubers in the spring for another outstanding display!

  2. Gorgeous flowering heads and real WOW factor!

    By Joanne Malcolm 18-02-2015

    I bought 10 tubers last year and was not disappointed. They tubers did take ages to sprout shoots and I did think that they would never grow into anything, but they did... They grew into lush green plants, each one with an abundance of yellow and dark orange/red flowers. The bees loved them and so did my family. They brought an enormous splash of colour to the garden and the whole hanging basket looked really impressive. I took the tubers out of the ground at the start of winter 2014 and have been storing them since. When I went to retrieve the tubers I only had 6.5 left as some kind of pest had munched lots of them! I'm just about to pot them up again for this year and hopefully they will put on the same glorious display as last year. These tubers are a bit pricey and take a while to get going but well worth the wait.
