Begonia Double White
Product Description - Begonia Double White
Begonia terry white - as if specially created to be admired! Another name: The knobby begonia. A real eye-catcher on your balcony or loggia, bed or patio. It looks perfect in the open air as well as in pots, flower boxes and hanging casseroles.
Its large, white, swollen flowers are enchanting. They exude a delicate sweet aroma. The shape of the flower is rose-shaped. The petals are slightly crimped. Flower size is 10 cm in diameter. Begonia blooms continuously from July to November. When the faded flowers are removed the plant will produce new ones and continue to thrive into autumn. The plant is approx. 25 cm tall. The delicate flowers contrast beautifully with the bronze leaves. In addition, the leaves of the begonia are highly decorative. They are openwork, patterned, heart-shaped.
It is not difficult to grow begonias. Even a novice florist can cope with such a task. Place the plant in a semi-shady location or a place with diffused light. Protection from the wind is a must, since its fragile, succulent stems break easily. The soil should be nutritious and have an acidity of 5.8-6.5. Planting period: in containers, plant in March-April and in the open air in May-June (after the threat of a return frost has passed). The begonia tubers should be planted 15 cm apart in the open ground. Planting density: 10 tubers per 1 sq. m. They can survive temperature downturns as low as -17.8°C.
Watch out! During hot, dry weather, avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight (as the leaves and stems will suffer). It is also important to keep the air moisture levels stable. Lastly, too much water is also contraindicated (it can die). The tubers should be dug up for the winter and stored in damp sand or peat.

How to Plant - Begonia Double White
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.
