    Characteristics and uses:
    The double flowers Begonia 'Bouton de rose',(Rose buds) have pale pink lined with red petals and they produce a magnificent and abundant blossom throughout the entire summer. They are sensational in pots, or grouped together, planted in flowering borders.

    Begonia bulbs are planted in the spring in either a pot or the ground. Plant them in a mix of soil and compost and only once the frosts have passed. Remember to remove any dead flowers, as this will encourage further flowering.

    In the more southerly regions, it is worthwhile growing the begonias in partial shade to protect them from the burning midday sun.
