Customer trial panel member Diana Eastwood has been gardening for quite some time and is a big fan of begonias…
I’ve been gardening for many years, but there is one bedding, basket and container plant that I can rely on – it’s our wonderful begonia that comes in many colours, and now we have fragrant ones too.
Trailing, upright large and small blooms, different shapes too, from early summer ’til the first frost – they just keep going… in the rain and hot dry summers they never fail to impress you. What more could you ask from a plant?
‘Apricot Shades Improved’ has been one of my favourites, I just love them! The colours and so many blooms in hanging baskets, tubs, Flower Pouches give a wonderful display and they have won me many a garden competition. I’ve been placed in East Grinstead in Bloom for over 13 years with the help of begonias.
Begonias help to make your display just perfect. If you haven’t try growing Begonias have a go you will never look back… I haven’t!! if you want your garden display to last longer, go for begonias. Keep them dry through the winter and, after a bit of feed and water in early spring, away they go again year after year – a great money saver too!
