Begonia 'Espresso Sugardip Pink'

Plant details

Begonias are great for growing in pots, tubs or at the front of the garden border, providing splashes of summer colour. Along with busy lizzies and fuchsias, are ideal for shady patios as they prefer light shade to full sun. Begonia 'Espresso Sugardip Pink' has large pink frilled blooms. Start the tubers off in late February at a temperature of about 15°C (60F) and plant out in to their final spot in late May to early June. The tubers can also be overwintered, lift in autumn before the first frosts, and dry them off. Then dust with a fungicide and store in a frost-free place.
