Tuberous Begonia Help Needed

Posted: Today at 00:31

Did you plant them with the tuber just sitting on top of the compost, then they are best watered from the bottom, the corm  likes to stay dry.

That's a Camelia, mine is just about the same as yours, they don't do well in my garden, I think it's too damp for them here, I've dug a couple out, the white ones are even worse for buds rotting before they are even properly open.

 I think everyone on this site has used this, does anyone know of anybody dying because of it, I don't, my parents lived to 91 dad always used it.

If you look on the label it will tell you how much to mix into a watering can full of water, divide that by 4 and add water accordingly, you don't have to make up the whole 2 gallons..

My garden is full of plants, originally from Parkers, could afford anthing else, I originally had those plugs,or ones similar,  I'm happy with a big root system like that, I just carefully unfurl the roots, they will unfold, them pot up for a month, plant out, and they will flower this year.  They are cheap and cheerful, depends on how far you want to go to tend them. Make sure if they are in a tea bag material that you remove it all.

In a month they will look altogether different, the roots will have filled the pot. I couldn't possible have bought single potted plants for here when I first moved In.

For the past couple of years I've been splitting them yet again and giving them away.

Sorry looking plant - ID & pruning?

I think it's a Gaura, they should be cut back after flowering, so I wonder if it's cut right back now, you would lose the flowers for this year. Maybe tidy it up and prune it in the Autumn after flowering.
