I thought I had purchased plug plants but they are bulbs. The last time I order Begonia tubers less than half germinated. The instructions say to plant in shallow boxes containing a mixture of loam/ leaf mould/sand. Can I buy a mixture like this? Sorry about my ignorance. I do have some rotted leaf mould but not sure what is meant by " loam". Help please.

Keep it simple-forget the technical terms

Pot up in to individual pots into multipurpose compost with the top of the corm just below the surface-water-keep somewhere warm-they will soon shoot and grow away

Also useful to know that the side of the tuber with the indentation [ saucer shaped ] should be placed uppermost.
