Planting Information:

Tuberous begonias are shipped as tubers.  If you are not able to plant the tubers upon arrival, store in a cool, dry, dark location.

Plant Begonia's when there is no more threat of frost and soil is 15°C (60°F).  Pick a location with bright light, but not direct sunlight.  They will grow in full to partial shade, but will not flower well in areas with deep shade and low light.  If you are planting begonia tubers directly into the garden, choose a location with fertile soil with good drainage.  Avoid water-logged areas as the tubers will rot.

Prior to planting, soil can be amended with compost or composted manure to improve fertility and drainage.  Loosen the soil and dig a shallow hole. Tubers should be planted 2.5 cm (1”) below the soil surface.  Place the tuber into the hole with the indented side (like a bowl) facing upward - this is where leaf sprouts will form.  Set the tuber at a slight angle, so water doesn't settle in the bowl.  Cover the tuber with 2.5 cm (1”) of soil and then water lightly to help settle it in place.  Space additional tubers 20-30 cm (8-12") apart.  Water your Begonia during active growth just enough to keep the soil damp but never soggy.

Tips:

After planting, do not water until the first sprouts emerge. Overwatering before you see leaves can cause the tuber to rot. Sprouts should appear in a couple of weeks.

- If you are planting begonias in pots or planters, make sure the containers have a drainage hole on the bottom.   

- If planting multiple begonias in a pot, space tubers 7-10 cm (3-4") apart.

- To get a jump start to the flowering season, you can plant the bulbs in potting soil  indoors up to 8 weeks before transplanting into the garden.  Do not move the Begonias outdoors until the overnight temperatures are above freezing.

- Begonias benefit from regular fertilization during the season.  Pick a fertilizer that is low in nitrogen.  Excessive nitrogen produces lush, green foliage but few blooms.

- Pinch or snip off faded blooms to encourage further blooms.
