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!

Again, disappointed with these, not delivered until end May, so no chance of them flowering in June-July. In fact they are only 2 to 8 inches high, probably see something happening around about Autumn, if we are lucky. Would not buy these again.
Van Meuwen says: because the weather and temparatures have been so poor so far this summer, many plants are several weeks behind where they would normally be. They should improve now warmer weather has arrived.
