Plant Info

Begonia Illumination is the perfect way to brighten your summer hanging baskets and patio displays with impressive flowers  produced in great volume all summer long.

It has a gently cascading habit so the display will be globe shaped and your hanging basket or patio tub will be covered in flower through 360 degrees a truly eye-catching display! It has been bred to withstand the wettest summer weather and the strong blooms will just bounce back and look fantastic after a downpour!

The mixed colours have been selected to look great when you grow them together but they will also provide bright accompaniment to almost any other summer patio plant a truly versatile and hardworking variety! Colours include shades of red, orange, yellow, white & pink.

Perfect for hanging baskets and tubs where the plants can trail.

+ Service rating : Heavy advertising and overstated adjectives slightly irritating, but enthusiastic descriptions of products no bad thing I suppose.
Product : Obviously, plugs take time to satisfy enough for reporting. Containers split partially and some plugs looking a bit worse for wear. Others fine so far (fortnight).
+ Service rating : Great service
Product : Health and on time but the delivery let it down as the parcel was left on my front door step in the pouring rain so when I pick the box up the plants fell out , the plants were alright.
++ Service rating : excellent service
Product : I have lost 4 plants so far so a little disappointed, but I do not have a greenhouse or cold frame
++ We were very impressed with the efficiency of delivery. It only took a couple of days from ordering to delivery.
-- Service rating : I contacted them about the Begonias as they were tiny. They insisted they were Jumbo even though I explained how small they were towards the Scardy cat ones. I was surprised to be informed that they source everything from a number of suppliers. I thought they grew their own. I bought Roses last year and a couple of them did nothing. I won't be buying again.
Product : Not jumbo sized plugs although You Garden has insisted they are. Tiny and no where as big as The Scardy Cat ones. I planted them in my hanging basket with good compost and feed.They have not survived and bar a couple are withered and dead.
YouGarden Comments
We are sorry that you are disappointed with the plants, however you did say that they were healthy and they should thrive.

As we explained there is some variation between the size of our 'Jumbo Plugs'. These are advertised as 2.5-3.5cm in diameter. We asked whether yours were within this range, however we have not had a response.

Roses are covered by our Lifetime Guarantee, as explained.
