Planting begonias

This question was asked by
Linda Davey

I have just received some begonia tubers from you. Can you advise me what you recommend to plant these in pots

Hi Linda
Double Begonia Tubers are ideal for containers, pots or tubs.
Begonias like a well-drained but moist compost in a sunny position. We advise planting 3 x tubers into an average hanging basket or pot.
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.
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.

Trailing begonias

This question was asked by

Hi, I would like to fill 10 x 14 inch hanging baskets with trailing begonias. How many tubers would you recommend per basket please?
When I know this, I can order from you.
Many thanks.

It can be difficult to judge how many bulbs to plant in a basket. I would suggest 5 begonia tubers for a hanging basket of 10×14″. Our Begonias are about 3-4″ in diameter so it will depend on the size of the tuber.

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.

Could you please advise on when they will be in stock. I have some lily bulbs in my basket but would like to add the begonias before I pay for them.

HI there,
These are now back in stock for you. If you wish for them to be delivered together with your lilies, ensure to put the delivery month as March for your lilies. Otherwise you may be charged twice for P&P.
