How to grow Begonias.
Begonias are excellent little plants for semi shade areas in your garden. They are easy to grow and require little maintenance. These annuals grow to about 6 to 8 inches tall and like a rich, well drained soil. Ideally, they should be located in an area with morning sun and afternoon shade. The harsh summer sunlight can burn their leaves.
It is best to have a well drained, moist soil – don’t let them dry out. You don’t want them to be over watered either to prevent root rot, but they do need to be watered frequently. Feed with a general fertilizer like 10-10-10 or a slow release fertilizer every couple of months. It is generally not necessary to deadhead them.
