    Frequently Asked Questions

    Double Camelia White Begonias are popular for their stunning white blooms, resembling camellia flowers. Follow these steps for a successful blooming period:

    • When planting begonia bulbs, start by selecting a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter.
    • Choose a location with partial shade or dappled sunlight, as these plants prefer indirect light. Plant the bulbs about 1-2 inches deep and 8-12 inches apart, with the smooth side facing down.
    • Water the soil moderately, keeping it consistently moist but not waterlogged.
    • For optimal growth, maintain a temperature range of 60-70°F.
    • Fertilize with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.

    The ideal time to plant Double Camelia White Begonias bulbs is in the spring, after the last frost, when soil temperatures have warmed to at least 60°F. This will allow the bulbs to establish strong roots and prepare for healthy growth during the summer months.

    If you live in a region with a mild winter, such as in USDA hardiness zone 9 and up, you can plant the bulbs in the fall for a beautiful display of flowers in the spring. And then you can also leave them in the ground year-round.

    After your Double Camelia White Begonias have finished blooming, it's essential to provide proper care to ensure they return in future seasons. Gradually reduce watering as the foliage starts to yellow and wither.

    Once it has completely died back, carefully dig up the bulbs and clean off any remaining soil. Allow them to dry for a few days in a well-ventilated area before storing them in a cool, dry, and dark place. Use a breathable container, like a mesh bag or cardboard box, and store them at a temperature of 40-50°F. Inspect the bulbs periodically for any signs of rot or pests.

    Begonias are hardy in USDA hardiness zone 9 and up, so if you live within one of these zones, you can leave the begonia bulbs outside in the ground.

    While no plant is entirely deer-proof, Double Camelia White Begonias are considered to be deer-resistant. These plants have a somewhat bitter taste, which tends to deter deer from consuming them.

    However, it's important to remember that deer might still graze on begonias if food sources are scarce. To protect your begonias, consider using deer-repellent sprays, fencing, or planting other deer-resistant plants nearby to create a protective barrier.

    Yes, Double Camelia White Begonias can be successfully grown in containers. Choose a container with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging and ensure healthy root development. Use a well-draining, high-quality potting mix that is rich in organic matter. Plant the bulbs 1-2 inches deep and space them about 4-6 inches apart, depending on the container's size.

    Place the container in a location that receives partial shade or dappled sunlight. Water the soil consistently, keeping it moist but not soggy. Fertilize with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season, and follow the same post-bloom care guidelines as for in-ground begonias.
