Product Description

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.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • You can remove the single female flowers to encourage more of the large double male flowers to be produced if you wish - although we like to leave them on for a fuller display.
  • Deadhead faded blooms to extend the flowering period.

 

Care Guide

  • Begonia ‘Apricot Shades’ grows well in sun and shade, and its trailing habit makes it perfect for growing in pots and hanging baskets.
  • For best results keep plants well watered, and feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser to prolong flowering.
  • Remove faded flowers to encorage more blooms.
  • Garden Ready Begonia plugs can be planted straight into containers and baskets.
  • When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise begonia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days.
  • Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is protected from strong winds - a cold frame is ideal.
  • Feed and water plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new begona flower buds to drop.
  • Deadhead the single female flowers to encourage more of the large double male flowers to be produced and to extend the flowering period.

Packers do not pack the plants correctly. My original order was damaged due to poor packing. A replacement was sent out which wasn't much better. Approx two thirds of the plants survived.

Great customer services. Problems with how order was packed meant that the plants were damaged. Replacements are being sent
Product:
Box of begonias was packed vertically inside the heavy duty 30l pots I also ordered. This resulted in the plants falling out of their tray and breaking up. A replacement order is being sent.
