Look no further for a fantastic addition to your containers or hanging baskets. These pendulous double begonia flowers offer shades of pastel apricot and yellow. Grow in part shade. Not winter-hardy, dig and store over the winter for future planting. 1 bulb per package.

Plant tubers indoors in March with the hollow side up. Tubers should be planted just below the soil level in a moist peat–rich mixture. Cover with paper or plastic film to promote growth but remove it as soon as growth appears. Water sparingly until growth starts; this may take up to 5-6 weeks. An application of a good liquid plant food will improve growth one established. They can be hardened off outside once all risk of frost has passed. Tubers can be dug before frost and stored in slightly moist peat or vermiculite at 5-10 degrees C (41-50 degrees F) over the winter.
