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.
When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise containers of 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.
