The beautiful Begonia Fimbriata Red is a rewarding summer bloomer that will give you pleasure for months. Begonia Fimbriata Red bloom all summer from June thru October and grow to about 25 cm high. These easy to grow, ruffled flowers work well in hanging baskets or pots in light shade. The best planting period for Begonia is spring after the danger of frost has passed – usually March thru early May. If using a flower pot or planter make sure there are holes in the bottom, so that the water can drain well. Cover the bottom with or a layer of hydro grains. Plant the tubers with their hollow sides up and cover them with a 1-2cm layer of moist, not wet, retaining compost enriched soil. Water the Begonia immediately after planting. If you keep the Begonia in full sun, make sure to water at least 2-3 times per week in the afternoon when there is no direct sun. By regularly cutting off the spent Begonia flowers, you promote reblooming. Begonia can hibernate just fine if you take the necessary action. Bring pots into a dry cool, frost-free area when the first night frost is forecast. In the spring, when there is no longer a chance of frost, place the Begonia back outside.
