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.
Begonia Million Kisses Specific Advice
Temperature for growing on: 12-15 Degrees C night temperature. Begonias are heavy feeders, a high nitrogen feed should be used as soon as the plugs have rooted out to promote a good plant foliage structure. After bud initiation, a high potassium feed will help flowers to develop. Grow a little on the dry side to prevent any fungal diseases. Million Kisses is naturally branching and therefore needs no pinching to control its shape.
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
These are one of three packs of plug plants that I purchased from Brookside. They were too dry for plug plants on arrival and although I watered them well they are still looking sad. Shame really as the other varieties that I bought are doing well
Good sized plugs
These plants appear to be in very good condition. The only problem was one is not yellow and actually like an apricot pinky colour. As I have planned colour co-ordinated baskets this is disappointing.
Excellent plants, well packaged
Plants were good size but hard to pot up as they were growing sideways rather than straight up
Lovely flower growing very strong
Well packed healthy plants
These plants look excellent, hoping for many, many blooms.
