I also have just received these begonia plug plants. Thought I'd put them straight in hanging baskets . Am I doing the right thing by putting them outside during day and bringing them in greenhouse at night. Didn't want to leave them in greenhouse during day as thought it would get to hot for them ( when the sun shines!!)
Thank you




Sounds sensible in what you are doing!

Well bear in mind they will have come out of a glasshouse without hardening off, so put them in a sheltered spot and bring them under cover if the weather turns nasty.

I hope you have better luck with yours than I had with my trailing begonias last year. From what I remember you have to get the conditions and humidity just right or they can grow a bit mouldy and the stems snap. Good luck

not the best plants for baskets i have found, as they do tend to rot very easily
