Begonia Rivulet Rose Amour has dark foliage and redish flowers. The rivulet begonia is an improved version of the well known million kisses variety. The Rivulet is slightly more compact meaning the strong and bushy foliage becomes smothered with beautiful large blooms. Continual flowering from April to October. Low maintenance – no deadheading or trimming required. More free flowering and refined habit than existing varieties. Copes well in both droughts and heavy rain, no need to deadhead!

Size guide - Pack of 3 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.

Begonia Rivulet 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. 

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.

First time ordered plugs online so thought 'large' plug would be bigger! All doing well. Flowers are more pale red/ pinky than the bright dark red in the picture and the leaves are also not such a dark green. Can't wait for them to grow. Great to select the week you want them delivered.

The plants arrived during the week that delivery was scheduled for.
They were packed very well with a moist compost and the foliage was well protected by the packaging so that each plant was individually protected.
Plants were in excellent condition and well sized with flower buds formed.
Could not be better.

Healthy-looking plug plants as always. Im not surprised that Brookside is a Which? Best Buy as the service is excellent, good communication and orders arriving when promised. Not the cheapest, but certainly worth the money.

plug plants were healthy though hardly giant
they are now growing and after a couple of weeks are about 2 inches tall
hopefully they will give a decent show but far too early to tell
they did arrive on time as promised

I have not put my plants out yet due to frost so cannot comment further on the plants. I was happy with this Company and would not hesitate to use them again
