Your begonias look wonderfull almost like my favourite too.

I will be trying harder with my baskets next year. My problems finding somewhere not too extposed, but where they can be seen. Also avoiding where they can be stolen.

these look to me like Apricot Shades. In previous years mine looked like this. This year they have come either pure apricot or pure yellow if you have a look.

What a lovely original idea, love your begonias too, just trying to decide what to put in my baskets this year, may give them a try, have some tubers I 've had a couple of years begonia 'aromatica' huge flowers and scented too, dried the tubers out so may try them :-)

Beautiful! Did you grow them from corms? I have tried all different tips for growing them from corms but no success :o((

Yes I did grow them from corms, I saved the corms for this year but they are doing nothing at the moment, I have another 65 on order which should be delivered any time, thank you for your comment

How will you start your corms off Yorkshire... any advice gratefully received!

Last year I planted them straight into my hanging baskets, 3 in a 12" and 4 in larger baskets, kept them in the greenhouse until the beginning of June, no heat in our greenhouse, if I remember rightly I think the begonias on order now will come as plug plants, I will let you know when they arrive.
