Plant Info

Year after Year, Begonia Illumination Apricot Shades features in our Top 3 best-selling bedding and basket plants. Why? It's undoubtedly the combination of fantastic performance in baskets and tubs whatever the Summer weather, combined with the gorgeous blend of warm tones and shades that the mix produces.

This beautiful variety has flowers in wonderfully warm shades of yellow, gold, apricot, orange and ochre that will fill your hanging baskets and patio containers with colour from May until October! The blooms are incredibly weather proof, long lasting and plentiful, held on strong healthy plants with a gently trailing growing habit.

They look best simply on their own, as there is enough subtle colour variation not to look too overdone. One for the short-list for sure.

Garden Bargains Comments
That's odd - all of our packaging for this product is designed to hold 12 plants in two rows of 6 (we don't have any packaging for six plants of this size).

- Service rating : I was happy with the service but not the product a lot of the Begonias were not established enough on a lot of them there was only one small leaf showing very fragile when transplanting into bigger Potts they broke up very easily that's why I rated the product bad

Garden Bargains Comments
Sorry - it appears these were a little shy rooted and were damaged in transit. If you'd like us to replace, please let me know.

Head of Customer Service
- Service rating : I ordered 12 begonia plants, but when the Courier delivered them they were absolutely trashed. When I got in touch with Customer services they sent me a replacement, but unfortunately this was also damaged. I phoned customer services again who was very apologetic and they agreed a full refund.
Product : I have given this rating because of the state of the plants when I received them
Garden Bargains Comments
So sorry about this. I will follow up with our Nursery Manager.

Head of Customer Service
