Begonias are easy to grow

Begonias are a gardeners delight since they are fairly easy to grow and maintain. The major requirements are less sunlight, more shade, a well drained soil and some care while handling them. They are delicate so bruise easily which means they should be handled with utmost care . They can be grown both outdoors and indoors. Originally found in South American Jungles they thrive on humid conditions. I have posted a picture of some of the varieties of Begonias growing in my garden..Please add on your own views and tips !

Wow, beautiful begonias you have there and some of them are quite rare! I love begonias and have them often, but the problem is that they grow very nicely and flourish beautifully but once the rains start, they fall prey to white powdery mildew. I spray home made insecticides and it takes care of the mildew but temporarily and it attacks again. So now I have no begonia. But I agree, they are very easy to grow, just keep trimming the old dead leaves and dead flowers and water sparingly once a day. Watering too much can cause soil to become waterlogged which is not good the begonias.

Lovely Pictures of your garden. I agree they are easy to grow and can be grown both outdoors and indoors. But being delicate, they need that extra care of regular pesticide ( I use the home made garlic spray and neem oil spray) and trimming of older leaves. They really flourish with a regular maintenance.

I am posting another picture with two more begonias growing in my garden, one was taken a couple of months ago when it was flowering. I have realised now that if they are kept at a higher position so that the water drains easily one never need to move them even during monsoons..
