Growing Instructions

  • In cold areas, start the tubers indoors
    about 6 weeks before you anticipate the last frost.
  • Plant the tuber in potting soil, round side down, about 1″ below the surface.
  • Water well and then keep the soil moist but not soggy. Keep in a warm, semi-shady area.
  • When all danger of frost has passed, transplant outdoors being careful not to disturb the roots.
  • In the garden, begonias need rich, porous, well drained soil and shelter from wind.
  • Space 12″ apart in shade or partial shade. Keep moist and fertilize at
    least once a month.
  • In containers tubers can be spaced 4-5″ apart.
  • Hardy in zones 9 and 10, all other zones the begonias should be dug and stored over the winter.
