Cultivation Advice Begonia Semperflorens Devil Rose
- The best growing medium is free draining, lightly fertilized fine seed compost.
- Surface sow the pills separately in trays or plugs. Cover them lightly with fine vermiculite to maintain humidity. Seeds do require light to germinate.
- Soil germination temperature must be 22-24C for success. An unheated greenhouse or windowsill is not sufficient.
- If you provide the right temperature the germination will take 10-15 days.
- Transplant carefully into 8cm pots when they are large enough to handle and grow on in cooler conditions.
- When you sow with pills you should not need to prick out seedlings
- Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed.
- Ideal in pots, containers, baskets or border bedding displays in full sun or part shade.
