Ideal for flower pouches. Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions for transplanting on into baskets, flower pouches 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. Choose a sunny or semi shaded site for their final position.
Feed and water begonia plants frequently to ensure a fabulous display all summer long. Deadhead faded Begonia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
