Planting and flowering details
Show moreIn the spring you can plant the hanging Begonia 'Angelique' tubers in fresh potting compost. Beware of late night frosts as the begonia tubers will need protection. Use a flower pot or planter with holes in the base to provide adequate drainage. Cover the bottom with pot sherds or a layer of hydro granules. Put the compost in the flower pot or planter and place the begonias approximately 20-30 cm apart, covering them with a 1-2 cm layer of compost. Water them immediately after planting. Hanging Begonia 'Angelique' grows and blooms well in partial shade.
Begonia 'Angelique' perfect for combiningBegonia ‘Angelique’ is a large hanging begonia which requires space. Using a large hanging basket or a tall flower pot you can combine the beautiful pink-white flowers with hanging fuchsias or hanging foliage plants such as ivy.
Show moreDeadhead the Begonia 'Angelique' regularly and this will encourage a second flowering. For an extra rich flowering we recommend using plant fertiliser regularly when watering. The soil around the begonia tubers must never be too wet, as this may cause the tubers to rot. Protect them from direct sunlight. The stems and foliage have high water content; therefore they are not frost-tolerant.
Overwintering begoniasBegonia tubers are very easy to overwinter. Lift the plants after the first night frost. Cut back all the stems to just above the tuber. Attach a label with the name of the begonia, so that next year you will know which variety they are. Shake the soil from the tuber and place the Begonia 'Angelique' in a box with compost and sharp sand. Store the tubers in a frost-free area. Next spring you can plant them again and look forward to the reward of their beautiful flowers.
For your begonias to experience an extra early flowering, you can 'withdraw' them. In the spring, place the tubers in moist compost at 15-20˚ C. As soon as shoots start appearing, place the tubers in a pot, allow them to get used to the outdoors once again. Finally they can be planted in the ground or in a flower pot. You will soon be enjoying a cascade of colourful flowers.
