Begonia Double Red Flower Seeds (Begonia Tuberosa) 30+Seeds
Begonia (Begonia Tuberosa Double Dark Red) - Growing Begonias from flower seeds is so rewarding and will give plenty of plants to create a stunning mass display of long-lasting color. Tuberous Begonias are compact plants that are loaded with blooms. This double red variety offers lots of color for an area in the garden that has dappled light. Begonia plants are also ideal for pots and baskets and do well on patios and porches where they are in indirect light.
Begonia care includes keeping the soil moist but not soggy. Also, Begonias are heavy feeders and perform best with a monthly application of a balanced liquid fertilizer. Begonia plants also look best if they're trimmed after the blooms are spent. Start Begonia seeds indoors 12 weeks before last frost. The flower seeds are very small and should not be covered. Press the Begonia seeds onto the sterile potting mixture, water from underneath to avoid fungus, and cover the flower seed tray with glass or plastic wrap to hold in the moisture. Harden off Begonia plants for 10 - 14 days before transplanting outdoors. They are frost-tender, so plant after frost danger has passed. Transplant tuberous Begonias into quality garden soil that has had organic matter added to it.
