Description

Summer is even more sensational when you start growing your own flowering pot plants in spring, and Begonia 'Bertini' is here to ensure your success. The orange-red, pendulous flowers seem to glow against the deep-green foliage, and Begonia 'Bertini' just keeps on giving with a lengthy flowering period during which it produces a profusion of flowers. It’s a versatile plant too – plant Begonia 'Bertini' in large containers or try it in hanging bowls so that you can enjoy its cascading habit to the full. All it needs is bright, indirect light and good drainage.

Store your begonia tubers over winter and plant them again next spring to repeat your summer success year after year.
