Begonia wynn-jonesiae 'Pink Lady' BWJ8119 Back in stock 2022
1 packet of approximately 100+, naturally small, hand pollinated, fresh seeds. A lovely species, collected by Bleddyn Wynn-Jones from Sichuan, China, that produces beautiful inflorescences of pink flowers. Height 30 cm. Full to part shade in a cool, sheltered position in moist, humus rich, well-drained soil. Not tested for hardiness, though could be hardy to -5 C to -8 C, so we would suggest growing it as a potted specimen in the garden and bringing it in before the first frosts.
We often get asked how to sow Begonia successfully. We find them easy but have been doing it for some years - the main thing is warmth, light and humidity. We use a peat-free compost with added horticultural sand and surface sow the tiny seeds as they need light to germinate. We could go into more detail but space won't permit so here is a good, detailed link for those who would like to give it a try: https://www.begonias.org/sowing-the-seeds/
