First time we are trying begonia tubers, could anyone let me know how many I would put in a window box and how far apart they need to be.
would be grateful for any help thank you



I'd start the tubers off in pots of compost in a greenhouse, assuming you're somewhere that has a proper winter! Here in UK we plant them out in late May after all risk of frost has gone. They need to be about a foot apart and like lots of food, use tomato food once a week when they start to flower.

Thank you for your reply, and we live in the UK so will need to start them of in our concervatory no greenhouse
