Frequently Asked Questions

Planting hanging begonia bulbs is a simple process that can yield stunning results in your garden. First, choose a location with well-draining soil and partial shade to provide optimal growing conditions. Partial shade will protect the begonias from intense sunlight and help prevent the soil from drying out too quickly. To plant the bulbs, dig a hole approximately 2-3 inches deep, and position the bulb with the rounded side down and the pointed side facing up.

This orientation ensures that the begonia will grow correctly. Space the bulbs about 6-8 inches apart, as this allows adequate room for growth and prevents overcrowding. After placing the bulb, fill the hole with soil, and water thoroughly to help establish the plant. Plant your begonia bulbs in the spring, after the last frost, to ensure a successful growing season and a beautiful display of blooms throughout the summer.

Watering hanging begonia bulbs correctly is essential to their health and growth. These plants prefer consistently moist soil, but not wet soil. So it's important to water them regularly and to find the sweet spot, particularly during periods of drought. Monitor the soil moisture and water when it starts to feel slightly dry to the touch.

Be cautious not to overwater, as excessive moisture can lead to bulb rot and damage the plant. Ensuring proper drainage in your planting location will help prevent overwatering and maintain the right level of moisture for your hanging begonias.

Hanging begonia bulbs typically bloom during the summer months, providing a delightful burst of color and fragrance in your garden. The flowering season generally begins in June and lasts until September, depending on the specific variety and local climate.

Planting your bulbs in the spring, after the last frost, helps ensure a successful growing season and a vibrant display of blooms throughout the summer. To extend the blooming period, you can stagger your planting times or choose varieties with different bloom times. This approach will create a continuous display of color and scent in your garden.

While no plant is entirely deer-resistant, hanging begonias are generally less attractive to deer due to their aroma. The scent emitted by these flowers can deter deer from browsing on them and other nearby plants. However, if deer are a significant problem in your area, it's essential to consider additional deer-resistant strategies to protect your garden fully.

These strategies may include planting other deer-resistant plants, using fencing, or applying deer-repellent sprays to safeguard your garden. By incorporating multiple methods of deer deterrence, you can create a more effective barrier and preserve the beauty and health of your fragrant begonia plants.

In colder climates, it's essential to lift and store your hanging begonia bulbs during the winter to protect them from freezing temperatures. After the foliage has died back in the fall, gently dig up the bulbs, being careful not to damage them. Shake off any excess soil and allow them to air dry for a few days in a well-ventilated area. Once the bulbs are dry, remove any remaining foliage or roots.

Store the bulbs in a cool, dry, and dark place, such as a basement or garage, with temperatures between 40-50°F (4-10°C). Place the bulbs in a breathable container, like a paper bag or mesh bag, filled with peat moss or vermiculite to help maintain proper moisture levels. Check the bulbs periodically for any signs of rot or mold and discard affected bulbs. Replant the bulbs in the spring after the last frost to enjoy their beautiful blooms once again.
