Deep and rich in this lovely shade, they are a rewarding plant, preferring a sunny or partly sheltered spot. Begonias are just as easily grown indoors as out, and will produce masses of colour with very little effort. Tip: Pluck off any single flowers to encourage the large double flowers to come. These plants are available anytime from July - October and can be planted through to December.
Begonia's are best left out of the soil in a warm spot, ideally in good sunlight where they will sprout and start growing slowly. Once the shoots are 2-3 cm long they should be planted 4-15 cm deep in well worked soil. Do not allow to dry out and keep in mind that Begonias are frost sensitive so be sure to plant after the frosts have passed.
