Product Description

Year after Year, Begonia Illumination 'Apricot Shades' features in our 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.

Supplied as 40 Pro Plug plants, ready to grow on before planting out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Deadhead faded snapdragon flowers frequently to encourage more blooms to be produced.

Care Guide

Planting Advice:

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • Plant straight into containers and grow on for a week or two before placing out.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry.
  • They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.

Customer service is appalling. Their lack of information, constant delays without explaination, and inability to provide any delivery date for item?s ordered 6 weeks earlier is simply unacceptable. They have shown a complete disregard for the customer. Quality of plants received was shocking, they arrived dead or damaged. After making a complaint, I was provided with a refund and later offered some plants as a good will gesture. They arrived 2 days ago and half of them were also dead.
Product:
Arrived too late completely dried out and badly damaged only 4 out of 40 have survived, and will still take weeks to grow big enough to use

This was a replacement item, as the original was damaged in transit, and also over-watered.
These plants were in much better condition.
Product:
The plants were in good condition, but because the plugs were again slightly damaged in transit, I don't think I would buy begonias on-line again. Those that were not damaged are growing well.

The box with the plant in was severely damaged. The delivery driver advised me that they has been watered and as such made the cardboard soggy so the plants got squshed when another item was placed on top. I did report this to leal World with photos but t hey have not responded ??
Product:
Dissapointed since it wasn't until when the flowers bloomed that l realised that l had not been sent all the apricot shades plug plants. They had been mixed with another variety so dissapointed with the display since l was expecting to have all apricot shades flowers but got some big white, red and yellow flowers amongst my apricot shades. ??
