Size guide - Tray of 20 Plug Plants 

Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (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. For best results feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser to prolong flowering such as Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food 1KG.

What do you mean by review title?

The next lot of plug plants arrived and were in much better shape than the begonias. I have however transplanted them all and have got the begonias in the conservatory where they are looking a bit better. Next time I would buy larger begonia plants.

Not the best
Wednesday, 5 May 2021  | 

Out of the 20 plugs ordered there was 1 missing and 2 that were in a poor state which didn’t survive. I have potted on the remaining 17 and they are continuing to grow. They are a delicate plant to post and as such I probably wouldn’t buy them again.

Very weak plants
Wednesday, 5 May 2021  | 

Surprised how small the plugs were when arrived. Plants not established enough to survive. Only nineteen plants. Decided to leave them in the plug tray for a few days. Put them in a greenhouse and kept them moist before potting on. Tried my best to nurture them back to life but still not looking good. Expect maybe three or four plants might survive!
