The Basics

Tuberous Begonias are best suited to climates that are cool at night. 
They require cool nights to grow properly.

They will grow in South Australia, Victoria, NSW and parts of Queensland.
Anywhere there are cool nights. They won’t grow in the tropics.

When purchasing a Tuberous Begonia from us, they will be available for mail-order from June until October. Until they start to grow.

Whitehouse Nursery Tuberous BegoniasThey can be grown in both pots, hanging baskets and the garden, although it's easier to manage them in pots and hanging baskets.

How To Plant And Care For A Tuberous Begonia

Position the plants with good light but no direct sun; a fernery, greenhouse, conservatory, protected porch or veranda is ideal. In fact, they'll grow wherever ferns, fuchsias, hostas or cymbidium orchids thrive.

When you receive your tuber, pot them into a small pot, around 10cm wide. It should be about 3–5cm wider than the tuber.

Position the tubers, one per pot, so they are covered by 1cm of potting mix. Ensure the tuber is the right way up. The bottom may have some dried roots still attached and the top has a smooth, round scar made by last year's stem. It may even have some tiny, pink, new shoots forming.

Use premium potting mix with added slow-release fertiliser. 
Keep tubers evenly moist by giving them a light sprinkle of water when the surface of the soil begins to dry. New shoots appear within weeks.

Once the shoots reach 5-10cm tall, pot them up into a pot about 20–25cm wide.
Start feeding fortnightly with a liquid organic fertiliser, such as a seaweed fertiliser. Ease up on watering, too. Give plants a good drench, but only when the surface of the potting mix is completely dry.
You may need to stake plants as they grow but take care not to injure the tuber.

Dormancy occurs from early June to August. Allow leaves to wither away naturally. Stop watering completely, move the pots under cover and lay them on their sides, off the ground, to dry out. Lift tubers of garden-grown begonias with a clump of soil and place under cover to dry out. Once dried, store in a cool, dry, dark place until spring. In August, repot the tuber back into the same pot with fresh potting mix.
