How to plant Double Begonias

  • Double Begonia Tubers are ideal for containers, pots or tubs.
  • From February onwards, start Begonia tubers off in a well-drained compost in a sunny position.
  • We advise planting 3 x tubers into an average hanging basket.
  • Position the Begonia tubers just below the compost surface with the 'hole' of the tuber facing up approx 2.5cm deep. 
  • Space your tubers about 2cm apart.

How to care for Picotee Begonias

  • Feed and water Begonia plants frequently throughout the growing season. Take care not to over water. 
  • 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.

Hi just to make sure is it compost or soil if planted in hanging basket

If you are planting your begonias in the garden, you need a well-drained soil. If you are planting begonias in pots, then a good multi-purpose compost will be be fine.
