With more than a thousand varieties, this is one of the more wide-ranging plant types. The begonia plant originated in the tropical regions of Asia, America and Africa, where there is a lot of moisture and light. Although begonias are very suitable as a houseplant, they are especially suitable for container or border planting. Their beautiful hues create an explosion of colours in your garden or on your balcony. Begonias are not winter hardy, so they should be planted after the last frost. In winter they should be stored in peat or vermiculite in a cool, dry place, ready for you to plant again next year.
Begonias are easy to plant and flower until the first frost. We suggest removing the old flowers, as this will stimulate the plant to flower again. Begonias are very suitable for the garden, but are certainly not out of place as a pot plant. The hanging varieties are of course suitable for planting in balcony boxes or in a “hanging basket”, but do not put them in full sun because of leaf burn!
