Planting+

Cascade Begonia's large tubers can be planted in fresh potting compost during the spring. Use a pot or planter with holes in the base to aid drainage. Cover the bottom with a layer of potsherds or hydrograins. Fill the pot with potting compost leaving sufficient space for the bulbs and allowing for watering. Plant the begonia tubers about 30-50 cm apart and cover with 1-2 cm of compost. Water well after planting. Cascade Begonias grow and bloom well in partial shade.

Care+

Frequently remove the faded flowers, to encourage a second flowering. For an extra rich flowering, when the plant is established it is advisable to provide a regular liquid feed. Protect from direct, bright sunlight. The compost around the tubers should not be too wet as this may cause the begonia tubers to rot. The stems and leaves contain high amounts of moisture, therefore they can definitely not tolerate frost.

Extra+

If you want your plants to flower earlier you can 'withdraw' them. Place them in a shallow tray in moist compost at 15-20° C during the month of April. When shoots begin to appear, place them in potting compost. By the beginning of May, they will get used to the outdoor temperature and you can plant them from mid-May onwards in either your garden or in a pot.
