Begonia Flamenco x5 Young Plants
This spectacular begonia features deep dark foliage with red-dressed flowers and tufted yellow centres. The dancing Senorita flowers keep on coming throughout the summer and, when spent, drop to the floor. An easy plant to care for, this is a perfect variety for growing in baskets or containers and will keep flowering until first frost.
We’d recommend you plant five to a basket or container for create maximum colour and impact, or in the border for a bright and weed-smothering effect. Plant in beds about 12in (30cm) apart so your plants have room to grow and produce lots of bold, lavish blooms. Plant up several pots and baskets of five plants for a really impactful and splendidly-scented display.
Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in.
If you grow them in flower beds mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in. 30-40 plants will fill a space of about a square yard (square metre).
How your plants arrive
Each of your flowers arrives to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through them and some small green stems and leaves.
Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.
Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic wallet contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The wallet allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you. Check your 5 plants are there in the plastic wallet, according to your order.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your perennial flower plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.
You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.
Keep your flowers in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.See Full Description +
