Begonia - Summer Rainbow

Summer rainbow is free flowering, long lasting and as the name suggests, you will get a rainbow of colours in this mix. It flowers throughout the summer and is great for border edging, bedding, pots and tubs. It is a half-hardy perennial, but treat as an annual.

Sow indoors from January to March. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow thinly on the surface of a small tray of pre-watered compost. Place in a warm, light position. A temperature of 21-24°C is ideal. Keep the compost moist. The tray can be covered with cling film to preserve humidity, but remove when seedlings appear, usually in 14-21 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out, from May to June, 23cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers from June to October.
