Begonia problems

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 22:26

Last year my begonias were half a success, this year I'm having another go.

I bought 4 healthy large plugs from the GC. They have been repotted and sitting on a gravel tray in the GH. The pot is moist and I keep the leaves dry, but still they manage to droop and fall off. I'm left with one stump and three sparsely leaved begonia plants.

What am I doing wrong!

Small gardens and spent compost

Hi, what I do is take about a foot away out of the pots, fork in some Fish, Blood and Bone. Now is the opportunity to put some Hort Grit in to if drainage needs improving. Then replace with fresh multi-purpose compost. That way you are not throwing so much away and you are not using to much fresh multi-purpose compost. Hope that helps.

Thanks for all your interest, but since the crisis down south, I have decided that they would appreciate the seeds more. Hope everyone understands my decision

Hi

One of mine looks a bit worst for wear, I think my one is in a too damp place. So I'm going to dig it up put it in a pot and dry it out in the GH. Hopefully it'll spring back to life.
