I have bedding begonias in a container that have survived the winter. Will they flower again this year?
Mine did. I left two of them in by accident, i thought i had got them all out. I wouldnt leave them in deliberately though.
Yes they will reflower, as Lyn has said. The problem if they survive frosts is that they tend to be get lanky, infested with insects and generally look bad. I would suggest if yours are lanky to cut them down to encourage bushy growth.
Thanks for your replies. I shall tidy them up a bit, although they look just as they were left last autumn, refresh the compost and see what happens.
Welcome thzad All begonias prefer well drained soil rich in compost or organic matter,I use soilless mix.
I use anything i have got, they dont seem to be fussy here. They are very tolerant, in different stuff every year.
Wow what an inspiration Lyn.
i must get busy in the greenhouse, and not sit here .
I have two containers of begonia firecracker. Too lazy to remove from containers so they were simply top dressed and fertiliser applied and look good. This will be their third year. Best to dig them up every autumn tho to replant again in fresh compost the following spring
Lyn very nice,wish I had a greenhouse.
Thzad i hope you do well please keep us updated,they grow better in shade.
Well done thzad
