Begonias are a plant with a thousand different personalities! Truly a must have in any garden display. These versatile flowers can be planted in flower beds & borders but also look great potted around the patio.

These enthusiastic plants reliably produce a blanket of brightly coloured blooms and their unique branching habit means they won't topple or snap, it also prevents them from becoming top heavy and breaking.

Our Solenia begonias are more wind resistant than other begonia varieties, as well as much more drought-resistant too. They are the plant you can plant anywhere; in the shade, in the sun, indoors, outdoors. the possibilities are endless! They will also make a stunning gift for a birthday, house warming or celebration.

The 'Solenia' is the ultimate plant for fuss-free summer flowering. The bright and cheerful petals look like a handful of tropical sweets. Unlike most other Begonias, 'Solenia' are 100% comfortable in a sunny border too, they just keep flowing and won't burn and suffer.

Growing Information

Potted Plants

On delivery of your plants you need to do this straight away: Carefully unpack your plants and check that the compost is moist. If it’s dry, water carefully using a small watering can and allow to drain. Stand in a light, warm place and then follow the ‘growing on’ instructions. Provided they are kept moist, they can usually be left for up to 3 days. Your plants have been grown under ideal conditions and inspected by one of our experts prior to careful packaging and despatch by post. However, should they have been damaged or delayed during delivery, please contact us immediately.

Remember to ensure all summer bedding plants are protected from spring frosts. Do not plant outdoors before late May/early June.

For the best results, pot these on and keep them in the greenhouse for a few weeks before planting them out. A 7cm pot filled loosely with moist compost is ideal to plant these sturdy young plants into. In each pack of extra value plug plants, you will find a dibber stick. If you intend to plant plug plants through the side of hanging baskets you can use a smaller pot than 7cm and transfer into baskets when well established.

To remove your plugs, gently push up through the base hole of each cell and ease the plant and root plug out of the tray. Place it into the centre of the filled pot, so that the roots of the plug are covered. Firm the compost gently around the base of the plug whilst ensuring the stem and leaves remain above the top layer.
