Pot up begonias plugs into 9cm pots of moist compost from February to March. Grow on in a warm, frost free position.
When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise begonias to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10 day period. Transplant begonias into containers or beds and borders, in any well drained soil. Choose a sunny or semi shaded site for their final position. Feed and water plants frequently. Deadhead faded begonia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.
We will do our best to ship your plants or bulbs to you at the ideal time for planting as stated against each product.

For greatest success, please pot on or plant out as soon as possible, following the cultural instructions enclosed with your order.
Begonia Lotto is an absolute winner!

Begonias are now my favourite summer bedding as come rain or shine they flower their little socks off and begonia lotto is an absolute star. I like this particular one as I prefer the green leaves rather than the bronze coloured ones and especially in contrast to the bright pink, red and white flowers which completely smother the plants. I also plant these in my parents' garden as they are both in their 90's and these plants require no maintenance at all unlike a lot of other bedding plants which have to be deadheaded to continue flowering. The plug arrived arrived well packaged and every single plug was a good healthy plant and I'm looking forward to another riot of colour this summer from these little beauties.
An Old Friend.

Summer just wouldn't be summer without the flouncy, joy-inspiring Begonia and this Lotto Mix has been superb all summer long. Well into August and still going strong with huge cushions of flowers on strong plants. Healthy little plugs helped, always a strong incentive for me to continue buying my plants from Van Meuwen.
