Begonia Pendula Red (Pack of 5)
Begonia Pendula Red (Pack of 5) Red Begonia Pendula Begonia Tubes
A beautiful trailing Begonia Pendula Red is a superb variety for your summer garden as it's the flower that just keeps on giving. Be sure to deadhead this pendulous variety to keep the length of the flowering time from being over too soon. 
 
Begonia Pendula Red will look fab in large containers or hanging bowls. It cascading style will be sure to bring back the same delight the following year if you lift you your tubers over winter and plant them again the next spring.

How to plant Pendula Begonias

  • Pendula Begonia Tubers are ideal for hanging down over containers, pots or tubs. 
  • Start the tubers off in late February and plant out in their final spot after the risk of frost has passed.
  • Plant in the spring for summer flowering. 
  • The tubers can also be overwintered, lift in autumn before the first frosts and dry them off.

Planting In Pots

  • Plant your tubers in the Spring. Starting them off indoors in the early spring months whilst there is still a risk of frost. 
  • Use a multi-purpose compst in full sun / partial shade. 
  • Ensure you have drainage holes in your pots and add grit to encourage free draining. 
  • We advise planting 3 x tubers into an average-sized container.
  • Position the Begonia tubers just below the compost surface with the 'hole' of the tuber facing up, cover with 2-3cm (1") of compost. 
  • Space your tubers about 8-10cm (3-4") apart depending on your pot size. 

Planting In the Garden

  • After the last frosts (usually March/April), you can plant your Begonia tubers outside in a well-drained soil in a sunny position.
  • Unlike other garden bulbs with a pointy tip, Begonia tubers have a hollow hole in the centre of them, plant them with this hole pointing upwards. 
  • Plant your Begonias shallowly, covering them with just 2-3cm (1") of soil. Space your tubers about 25cm (10") apart.

Care Instructions

How to care for Begonias 

  • Feed and water Begonia plants frequently throughout the growing season. Take care not to over water.
  • Feed your Begonias with a high-potash fertiliser like a tomato feed. 
  • Deadhead faded flower heads regularly, this will encourage new growth for longer.
  • Once the Begonia flowering season has finished, the stems and foliage will turn yellow and die back naturally.
  • Reduce watering to prevent rotting.
  • Once all the stems have fallen off naturally, dig out the tubers, clean and dry them before storing them away in peat or sand in a dry, frost-free area like a garage or shed.
  • Replant the following February.
