Tuberous Begonias are lovely plants for containers and sheltered areas, and do well indoors. They are laden with flowers in summer to autumn. The blooms are large and flamboyant, in a range of flower forms from single to fully double, and in most colours. They grow from tubers, which are planted in spring, and they need adequate drainage. To get the best growth, feed every couple of weeks with a half strength or less liquid fertiliser. They should not be overwatered. Strong sun will burn the plant. Begonias like a restricted root run, so don't put them in an over large pot.
