@justin you need to try this if you are experimenting with begonias. Been out for quite a time now but is one of the best ones around 'still'. This was my basket about three yrs ago. Incidentally under planted with Dichondra Silver Falls (another excellent basket plant) #basket

I've certainly seen this around - I think a few people on GT have this. Although tagged as garden photos unfortunately

@richard.spicer.7906 it must be coming up for five yrs old. It was one of the 'new generation' of begonias that was introduced and took off immediately as their appearance was just after the 'Busy Lizzie' powdery mildew outbreaks, so people were looking for something new. It still stands up against some newer cultivars... Although there are some really fab ones.

@robbiec I picked one of these up for the princely sum of £2 in a certain DIY store at the weekend. Very pleased with it and I'd love to overwinter it. Can you give me some tips?

@tash74 Similar to a tuberous type of begonia. Frost free, reduce the watering, hope for the best.😉

Thanks @robbiec! I'll give it a go, conservatory isn't heated but is pretty frost free unless we experience a Siberian winter!
