Get to Know Begonia

Equally at home in both worlds, begonia is your indoor-outdoor summer perennial that’ll give a pop of colour among the greens.


To get the perfect balance of growth and flowering, place in a semi-shade spot, indoors or out. Take care not to place in full sun, or directly near the window. If leaves burn, place out of the light for some needed shade. 


Watering correctly is critical for survival, so ensure watering occurs immediately after soil becomes dry. Water the base only – this will prevent spotting or disease. 


Free-draining soil is best. If planting indoors, use good quality potting mix. These are summer babies, and are absolutely frost intolerant, so start growing after winter has passed.
