Begonias – All You Need to Know!
Not many years ago Begonias were thought of as simple house plants, since then they have become a favourite summer bedding plant amongst our customers and many other gardeners. Begonias are tender annuals that come in a dazzling array of warm colours with stunning green and bronze foliage. They are ideal for any place in your garden, from containers and beds to borders and hanging baskets.
Begonias rival bedding plants like Busy Lizzies for their fantastic warm colours and showy flowers. They are a very large and versatile family of plants, giving a wide range of choice, habit of growth and hardiness. Begonias will flower roughly from June to the first frosts so you can have colour throughout much of the year.
