I bought plug plants of trailing begonias form Jersey Plants. I think it was free P&P and they were really cheap. They were really small when they arrived but I potted them on and they flowered that first year and made tubers.
Like Blairs says Vine weevils are a pest but when the the plants die down in the autumn i soak them in a solution of Provado VW killer. I've kept the tubers for two years now and some of them are about 5inches across now.
I've also bought plugs of pelagoniums form Jersey Plants before. Again very small but flowered well in first year.
Just looked at this years catalogue pelagoniums £14.99 for 180 plug plants
Begonias start at £14.99 for 180 plugs.
