Bulb Planting Advice

Growing Begonias


Begonias are one of the most useful summer flowering plants. They can be used in beds, containers and hanging baskets. Begonias are easy to care for and will grow even in partial shade.





Winter Storage


As begonias are not tolerant of frost, it is essential to lift and store them over winter.


Cut the foliage down to ground level and carefully lift the plants out of the soil. Leave to dry and trim off any fine roots.


Store tubers in trays or wooden crates, packed with dry sand or peat-free compost. Store in a cool dry place and protect from frost.
