As the name suggests, Begonia Glowing Embers confidently glows all summer long. Rich purple-bronze foliage contrasts with smouldering, almost luminous tangerine-orange blooms for a season long display. This intense Begonia has a compact, semi-trailing habit that looks spectacular spilling from hanging baskets and containers. An amazing blaze of colour, useful in a shady area too. Height and spread: 30cm.

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. For best results feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser to prolong flowering such as Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food 1KG.
