Yellow & Salmon Pendula Begonia Cascade Mix
Dress your summer pots and baskets with a tumbling, bountiful mass of fresh, citrus-coloured blooms with our zesty mix of Yellow & Salmon Pendula Cascade begonias.
Perfectly suited to containers, begonias thrive in soil enriched with leaf-mould or organic matter. This colourful combination will bloom with gusto from late spring until autumn, when the first frost sets in.
Features elegant, pointed foliage in lush green, which shows off the large, tousled flowers beautifully.
Begonia tubers should be started in March or April, in a cold frame or greenhouse.
Choose a pot with a 20cm diameter and several holes in the bottom for drainage. Fill it with rich, good quality compost, leaving a 5cm gap from the rim. Plant your Begonia tuber with the hollow side uppermost, ensuring it sits 2.5cm below the soil surface. Water consistently, keeping the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Place the pot undercover, in a shaded area with temperatures around 18-24°C and shoots will soon start to appear.
Once the danger of frost has passed, usually around the beginning of June, Begonias can be planted out.
Begonias will reach a height of 30-45cm, boasting vibrant, showy blooms ideal for patio containers and hanging baskets.
In October, lift the tubers, remove faded foliage and store in a frost-free place, in dry compost or wood shavings.
