Trailing begonia help please.
« on: May 02, 2021, 14:59 »
I have a container which is 18 inches across.  It came with a coconut liner which is about 1 inch below the top.
The soil is about 1.5 inches to the top of that,  It is therefore about 2.5 inches below the rim.
Questions:-
1.  Can I plant trailing begonia in it
2.   How far in from the edge should they be.
3.   How many should I plant in it.

The back of it is in front of a fence, should I still plant at the back.  Will I need another plant to put in the centre.

Sorry that is actually 5 questions.   Goggle doesn't give me the answers, but I know somebody on here will.
Many thanks,   Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

Id add more compost up to the top of the liner & plant 3 trailing non stop begonias around the front edge of your container with maybe an upright fuschia or geranium(pelargonium) in the middle towards the back, see how that looks when you plant & imagine it when it has grown & filled out & only add more of something if you feel it needs it.
