Begonia

We grow a range of Begonia, most of them perfectly hardy in the ground in most of the UK much to the surprise of many customers!  Most species prefer to be out of direct sun for the hottest parts of the day but don't need complete shade.

The hardy deciduous types will be relatively late to emerge in the spring so don't panic if they haven't appeared until at least May.

The tender types are clearly described and will bee to be kept frost free at a mimimum, they make good conservatory or house plants overwinter and can spend the warmer months outside.
