Begonias

Potted up the new begonia corms I have bought over the past few days, making an early start by temporarily potting them up  in unheated conservatory to help break the dormancy

Once growing and the weather has warmed up they will be transplanted into their final growing pots, probably out the front on raised area near my front steps

Here are the types,

Fimbrata – Home bargains £1.50 for 5 corms

Cascade- Morrisons offer 3 for £5, 4 corms

Double – Morrisons offer 3 for £5, 4 corms

Double – Wilkinson’s £5 for 10 corms

Pendula – Wilkinson’s £5 for 10 corms

It became very obvious as I potted them that “you get what you pay for”

Here are two corms, the smaller one is Home Bargains @30p per corm, larger is Wilkinson’s @ 50p per corm. I think I can guess even now which will be the better blooming plants later in the year
