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.
