Choosing the Right Begonia Tubers to Buy Online

When selecting begonias for planting, first make sure you have the right growing conditions for these tender tubers (commonly referred to as "bulbs"). Begonias thrive in shaded or partially shaded conditions and most don't care for direct early afternoon sunlight. While they need well-drained soil, they aren't drought tolerant. This means that you'll need to regularly water them. Finally, begonia bulbs aren't cold hardy. You can either grow them as annuals, bring them indoors during the cold weather or lift the tubers in the fall and store them over winter.

When selecting the right begonias for your patio space, window box or garden, take into account their growth habit. Some begonias, particularly our Hanging Basket Begonias, have a cascading habit, making them absolutely stunning in hanging baskets—or other places where you want a cascading look. Also, consider their flower color. Begonias bloom a lot, so they'll provide colorful flowers for months.

Finally, consider how you want to use your begonias. Many gardeners love to plant begonias in patio pots and window boxes. They are colorful, easy-to-grow container plants. Begonias also look lovely in the garden, especially along walkways or in transitional areas from the sun to shade gardens.

Growing Begonias

To ensure optimal growth, plant your begonia bulbs in well-draining soil with indirect sunlight. Water them consistently, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged. Begonias are relatively low maintenance, making them a perfect choice for busy gardeners. As they bloom, you'll be treated to a kaleidoscope of colors, ranging from delicate pinks to bold reds and everything in between. Begonias are some of the easiest shade plants to grow and begonia care is minimal, requiring only light deadheading and well-drained soil. However, they don't care for cold weather, and in most parts of the country, they can't be overwintered outdoors. They can either be treated as annuals, or, if living in zones 3-8, the tubers can be lifted in the fall, stored over winter, and planted again in the spring. If growing them in a container, they can be brought indoors over winter. Learn more about How to Plant, Grow, and Care For Begonias.
