Tuberous begonias are renowned for their bright colours and long flowering season. Male and female flowers are borne separately on the same plant, with male flowers being more elaborate than the female. Tuberous begonias produce masses of flowers, and are ideal for growing in baskets and pots.

Begonia ‘Million Kisses Elegance’ is one of the most vigorous trailing begonias available. It bears pretty, orange-pink and white, open flowers in contrast with dark green foliage. It’s perfect for growing in pots and hanging baskets, needs very little maintenance, and thrives in full sun to shade. For best results keep plants well watered, and feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser to prolong flowering. Lift tubers in autumn, before the first frosts, and store in barely moist soil or sand in a frost-free shed. Water the tubers occasionally to stop them drying up.
