I'm very new to gardening- have always just bought stuff at garden centres before.
This year I have tried some mini plugs and even tried some seeds. I have pinched out the tips of sweet peas and geraniums but wonder if I should do the same to begonias?
Any help greatfully received
it depends on how the plant is growing, if it looks bushy enough then dont bother but always be careful to allow the plant to reach a decent size before you nip out the growing tip, and try to pot on the growing tips of the geraniums as these root readily if in free draining compost
Many modern seeds don't need pinching out as they've been bred to be bushy. Begonias are usually OK left alone.
