The Q&A Archives: Begonia

Question: I just purchases a vigoro begonia in tag to let me know if its sun or shade. Looks like a double flower.

Answer: Begonias are reasonably adaptable. They don't like dry soils which will cause the buds to drop. So a moist, partially-shaded position is ideal, especially if it is shaded from the mid-day sun. If exposed to the sun most of the day, water the plants frequently to prevent bud drop and keep the flowers blooming. Enjoy!
