Size guide - Pack of 5 Large Plug Plants 

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.

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.

Here be dragon wings!
Thursday, 5 August 2021  | 

I'm very happy with these fantastic begonias. The plugs arrived in excellent condition and have all thrived even the one that lost most of its leaves in a squirrel attack early on. I've planted them in balcony railing troughs and they've spread out nicely to fill the available space. Some have been a little slow to flower, but the foliage is so lush and such a lovely shade of green, it's not a problem. And the ones that have bloomed look bright and cheerful and give an almost tropical look. I've found them to be low-maintenance, too. Please keep stocking these Red Dragon Wings as they're likely to become my summer planting go-to.

arrived exactly on time and in superb condition

outstanding begonia-have ordered them for the past 4 years
Wednesday, 27 November 2019  | 

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 !


We are delighted that you are so pleased with your plants many thanks for your review, we do appreciate it!

Had 2 of these several years ago and have been looking for them ever since and a sensible price - found you by accident but extremely pleased with delivery - exactly as stated with email updates and the plants have arrived and I am incredibly impressed with the quality of them, well packaged and now potted on in a warm place. along with the Nemesia and stocks. Thank you to all the team there -I would definitely recommend to my friends.

I bought these plug plants from you last year. They weren't what I was hoping for, but I potted them up and eventually planted them out. How glad I am! They proved to be outstanding plants and flowered profusely, not succumbing to the cold weather until just after Christmas. Who could ask for more. I will DEFINITELY be re-ordering this year.
