Product Information

Year after year, Begonia Illumination 'Apricot Shades' features in our top 3 best-selling bedding and basket plants. Why? It's undoubtedly the combination of guaranteed performance in baskets and tubs, whatever the summer weather, and the gorgeous blend of warm, summery tones and shades that the mix produces from May right until the first frosts of autumn.

'Apricot Shades' produces blousy, double-blooms in wonderfully warm shades of yellow, gold, apricot, orange and ochre that will fill your hanging baskets and patio containers with colour all summer-long. The blooms are incredibly weather proof, long lasting and plentiful, held on strong healthy plants with a gently trailing growing habit.

They look best simply on their own, as there is enough subtle colour variation not to look too overdone. One for the short-list for sure.

Top Tips

  • You can remove the single female flowers to encourage more of the large double male flowers to be produced if you wish - although we like to leave them on for a fuller display.
  • Deadhead faded blooms to extend the flowering period.

 

Care Information

  • Begonia ‘Apricot Shades’ grows well in sun and shade, and its trailing habit makes it perfect for growing in pots and hanging baskets.
  • For best results keep plants well watered, and feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser to prolong flowering.
  • Remove faded flowers to encorage more blooms.
  • Begonia plugs can be planted straight into containers and baskets but are best potted on first and grown on in warm, frost-free conditions.
  • Begonia plants can then be transplanted into their final containers once they have increased in size.
  • When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise begonia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days.
  • Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is protected from strong winds - a cold frame is ideal.
  • Feed and water plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new begona flower buds to drop.
  • Deadhead the single female flowers to encourage more of the large double male flowers to be produced and to extend the flowering period.
