Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
General Growing Advice
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. Once your Begonia plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks. Water once the compost starts to dry out but remember, Begonias generally will not thrive if overwatered, so it’s worth keeping an eye on them.
If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.
Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.
Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.
Begonia Specific Advice
Take care not to over water begonias, as this will cause new begonia flowers buds to drop. As with most bedding plants, begonias also benefit from regular deadheading of faded flowers to extend the flowering period and encourage more blooms to be produced.
Strong plants with very large and showy lemon-yellow flowers. They seem to be happy in a sunny location.
They were potted up and are showing flowers so they will be potted up into a 30cm Recycled pot with a Which Best Buy compost mixed with Miracle Grow All Purpose slow release plant food and await the results.
Although advertised as large plugs, this was not the case
Quality slightly imperfect
Strong healthy plants
I bought this last year and was extremely pleased with it so decided to buy again. It is very pretty and was in flower for such a long time. Love it.
Just purchased 2 lots of these Begonias. Four out of the 6 large plug plants are doing really well having being planted on into pots before being ready to go outside. Two of the large plug plants arrived in not such good order. Not growing as well as the the other four and possibly will not be good enough to go outside into pots.
Outstanding in all respects. Definitely will be back next year.
Good size plugs and healthy. Very pleased
As always with plants from Brookside nursery, these were excellent, healthy plug plants.Look forward to seeing them blooming.
