Begonia corms

This question was asked by
Dori H

Hi! If I order some Begonia corms now, will they be all right until I plant them in February? How should I store them? Or do you take the order but not deliver until nearer the time?
Thank you!

Hi Dori

If you place your order now for Begonia corms, they will be dispatched in February ready for planting.

How to prepare Begonias for storage over winter. Do you remove all the stems so the that the corm is concave?

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.

How many tubers/corms do I plant per hanging basket?

I would advise planting 3 begonia bulbs to an average sized hanging basket.

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.
