Begonias Frimbriata Yellow & White Mix
Our begonia fimbriata 'Yellow and White Mix' captures the lively hues of spring and extends their freshness across the seasons. Like the first days of spring, blending sunshine warmth with a crisp purity, this combination of yellow and white is instantly invigorating. These Begonias are smothered with blooms from May to September, prolonging their energising effect into the golden days of autumn. Each petal is delicately frilled, adding a subtly feathered effect. Ideal for enlivening your container and bedding displays, begonias cannot fail to lift the spirits.
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.
