Planting+

Begonia (Begonia) tubers can be potted up in spring, using fresh potting compost. Beware of late frosts – begonia tubers really won’t survive it. Always use pots with sufficient drainage holes. Cover the base with potsherds or gravel. Add potting compost and place the begonia tubers on top approx. 20 cm apart and cover the tubers with about 1-2 cm of potting compost. Water immediately after planting. Begonias grow and flourish perfectly in part shade.

The tuberous begonia as a bedding plant

The begonia grows well in flower pots or planters but it also makes a terrific bedding plant. Especially when planted out in large groups the begonia always makes a statement in the garden. The flowers are mostly very large and appear throughout the summer.

Care+

Regular deadheading of the tuberous begonia will encourage new flowers to grow. For extra abundant flowering, add a liquid fertiliser to the watering can and we do advise this. Don't make the soil around your begonia tubers too wet, a wet soil could rot the tubers. Protect the plants against strong sunshine.  The leaves and stems contain lots of moisture so they will not withstand frost either.

Overwintering begonias

It's easy to keep your begonia tubers over the winter. Dig the plant(s) up after the first night frosts. All stems and foliage can be cut hard back. Label the plant so you know what you're dealing with next spring. Remove all the soil from the tuber and place it in a tray of dry compost, sharp sand or sawdust. Store in a frost-free area. Plant them out again next spring and the plant is sure to reward you with lovely flowers again.

Extra+

Since around 1870, there have been hybrid species come to be known as the tuberous begonia group. These tuberous begonias (Begonia x tuberhybrida) give the most spectacular flowers among all begonia varieties. Begonia belongs to the Begoniaceae family.
Originally from the warmer regions of South America (Peru, Colombia and Ecuador) these species are now used as ornamental plants over the whole world.
