    How to care for Begonia Angelique

    • Maintain evenly moist soil, but avoid over-watering, as this can lead to rot.

    • Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly during the growing season to support healthy growth.

    • In regions with harsh winters, dig up the bulbs after the foliage has died back and store them in a cool, dry place until spring planting.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    To plant Fragrant Angelique begonia bulbs, follow these steps:

    • Choose a well-draining location with partial shade.
    • Start by preparing the soil, and mixing in organic matter like compost to improve drainage and fertility.
    • Plant the bulbs 1-2 inches deep and 6-8 inches apart, with the smooth side facing down.
    • Water the bulbs thoroughly after planting and maintain consistent moisture throughout the growing season.
    • Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly to encourage healthy growth.
    • To maximize growth and blooming, consider planting the bulbs in containers or raised beds, as they allow for better soil control and easier maintenance.

    The ideal time to plant Fragrant Angelique begonia bulbs is in the spring after the last frost, when soil temperatures reach 50°F (10°C) or higher. Planting during this period ensures that the bulbs have sufficient time to establish themselves before the onset of warmer weather.

    In regions with mild winters, such as in USDA hardiness zone 9 and up, you can plant the bulbs in the fall, allowing them to experience a period of dormancy before spring.

    In colder climates, consider starting the bulbs indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, and then transplant them outdoors once the threat of frost has passed.

    Deadheading Fragrant Angelique Begonia bulbs is generally recommended. Regular removal of spent flowers not only maintains the plant's aesthetic appeal but also encourages continuous blooming. Deadheading prevents the plant from channeling energy into seed production, redirecting it instead towards the growth of new blooms. This practice helps prolong the flowering period and ensures a more abundant and prolonged display of the fragrant blossoms characteristic of the Angelique variety. Additionally, removing faded flowers prevents the plant from self-seeding excessively, controlling its spread in the garden

    Fragrant Angelique begonias are not considered deer-resistant. Although deer may not specifically target these plants, they will eat them if more preferred food sources are scarce.

    To protect your begonias from deer, consider using deer-resistant plants as a barrier or employing various deer-repellent strategies, such as installing fencing, using commercially available repellents, or utilizing homemade remedies like a mixture of eggs, water, and hot sauce. Keep in mind that no plant is completely deer-proof, and success with any deer-resistant strategy may vary depending on the specific conditions in your garden.

    How to overwinter Fragrant Angelique begonia bulbs?
    To overwinter Fragrant Angelique begonia bulbs in colder climates, follow these steps:

    • After the first frost, trim back the foliage to 2-3 inches above the soil line.
    • Carefully dig up the bulbs, taking care not to damage them, and shake off excess soil.
    • Allow the bulbs to dry for a week in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight.
    • Once dry, pack the bulbs in peat moss, perlite, or vermiculite and store them in a cool, dry, and dark location with temperatures between 40-50°F (4-10°C).
    • Inspect the bulbs periodically during storage for any signs of mold or rot.
    • Replant the bulbs in spring after the last frost, following proper planting guidelines.

    In areas with mild winters, such as in USDA hardiness zone 9 and up, you can leave your begonia bulbs year-round in the ground.
