Hanging basket Begonias

mollyzone5April 7, 2005

I bought 3 of these bulbs.The package says to set them on moist peat until the shoots appear.Well 2 have shoots but 1 has not showed yet.I read that if the shoots do not appear to turn the bulb upside down into the moist peat and keep checking for shoots.When I turned the one over I see that it had roots so I left it right side up.

Should I turn it over or should I leave the roots in the peat.I have never tried these before,any tips you can give?Also,I want to plant all 3 in a 12in hanging pot,is that O.K.I want the pot nice and full,but I am not sure how big each bulb gets.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Plant them all now. Make sure the concave (rounded) side is down and the hollow side is up. Cover with 1.5-2" of soil.
