Hi have been reading about members problems with begonia plug plants, withering and dying after I potted them on. I had the same problem with some but the rest are doing well I am now ready to put them into baskets but I normally fill the basket part way with soil, water and put in some plants and then do another layer. Should I wet the compost as I go? I have always done this in the past but have never planted them up with trailing, fibrous begonias before. I am worried that the stems will wither and die again.
Also I am using easy plant baskets for the first time, does anyone have any experience of these?
