Buying bare root perennials is an economical and eco-friendly way to buy plants - no compost or plastic pots. Bare root perennials are easy to grow and look after too. They just need cutting back at the end of autumn or early spring and new stems will appear in the spring and the plants will increase in size season after season giving bigger and better displays.

Arrived in early 2019 as healthy plug plants and planted in various locations around the garden. Foliage is not particularly attractive but these plants do produce a profusion of eye-catching flowers over a long period. The root system is not very substantial (for a plant of their size) so avoid planting in a wind-exposed site. Other websites suggest these plants are best regarded as an annual.
outstanding begonia-have ordered them for the past 4 years

The glossy ,shiny dark green leaves of this begonia contrast with the red flowers to make a stunning plant-I wouldn't be without it. Each year I plant a single ones in each 25cm pot and put the pots as a feature in the front garden. I get many admiring comments . They grow to about 40-45cm tall and are bushy. They last well into October and then once the foliage has died down I keep them frost free. They then start into growth in the Spring. I order a new pack each year and also now have 11 older plants--great value !
