Begonia Double Yellow Flower Seeds (Begonia Tuberosa) 30+Seeds
Begonia (Begonia Tuberosa Double Yellow) - If you have a lot of dappled light in your landscape, Begonias are a wonderful plant to grow. Start the Begonia Tuberosa seeds and grow a large quantity of plants to give a wonderful color display with this bright yellow, double flowered Begonia. Many flowers do not perform in indirect light, but Begonias perform well in shady conditions making them invaluable. They work nicely in containers and baskets too for porches and patios that have 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.
