A rewarding plant, they prefer a sunny or partly shaded spot. Begonias are just as easily grown indoors as out, and will produce masses of colour with very little effort.
Tip: Pluck off any single flowers to encourage the large double flowers to come.
Begonia’s are best left out of the soil in a warm spot, ideally in good sunlight where they will sprout and start growing slowly. Once the shoots are 2-3 cm long they should be planted 4-5 cm deep in well worked soil. Do not allow to dry out and keep in mind that Begonias are frost sensitive so be sure to plant after the frosts have passed.
