Begonia Double Dark Red
Begonia Double Dark Red - flower bulbs and perennial plants from Holland
Product Description - Begonia Double Dark Red
The beautiful foliage contrasts spectacularly with the large, stunning flowers. You will fall in love with this begonia. This romantic dark red variety captures the heart at first sight. Its flowers start to bloom in late spring. They are large in size and terry shape. The leaves are dark green with serrated edges and are very delicate. They are sensitive to moisture (brown spots appear) and direct sunlight. Tuberous begonias are compact plants that are generously studded with flowers. In a short space of time, they can decorate your plot, patio, veranda or terrace. Begonias are ideal for pots and baskets and look good outdoors. The outdoor planting density is 9 tubers per square metre.
Like all begonias, this variety does not like the cold. A sudden change in temperature will cause its leaves to fall off. The location for planting should be well sunlit, but direct rays should be avoided. A spot of shade is ideal. Also, tuberous begonias grow well in shady conditions and this makes them an invaluable plant. In summer, in hot weather, they should always be shaded. The soil should be fertile, with a pH of 5.8 to 6.5. After flowering, the above-ground part withers and the plant prepares for a dormant period. The begonia tubers should be planted in fresh soil (after the dormancy period). From spring to autumn, keep the soil moist but not damp. The height of the plant is 30 cm.

How to Plant - Begonia Double Dark Red
Guide and tips for planting begonia bulbs
Choose the planting location: Begonias prefer partial shade to full shade and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.
Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.
Plant the bulbs: Dig a hole that is about 5-7 cm deep and place the Begonia bulbs with their pointed end facing up. Space the bulbs about 15-20 cm apart.
Cover the bulbs: Cover the Begonia bulbs with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.
Water the bulbs: Give the bulbs a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around the bulbs. Begonia bulbs prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.
Mulch the area: Add a layer of organic mulch around the bulbs to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the base of the bulbs to prevent rot.
Monitor the bulbs: Begonia bulbs typically take about 6-8 weeks to emerge from the soil, so be patient. Once they emerge, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Begonias can bloom in late spring to early summer and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
