The Lavender Plants In The Garden

Amongst the lavender plants also a must have in the garden is the begonia plant, these plants come in two main varieties, fibrous rooted or tuberous rooted. The tuberous begonias produce summer-long flowers and thrive in partially shaded garden beds, and the Fibrous rooted begonias are grown for either their foliage of flowers; both plants are tender perennials that thrive with the proper care.

Begonias thrive in rich, evenly moist soils, but need shade, as full sun can burn and damage the foliage, best places to plant outdoors is a partially shaded area that receives some morning sun or areas underneath shrubs and trees that receive all-day dappled sunlight, and indoors place pots in areas that receive bright, indirect sunlight, such as near a south-facing window.

Begonias are warm-weather plants that are killed by freezing temperatures, outdoor plants must be brought inside in areas that experience winter freezing. Tuberous begonias are the type usually planted outside; having said that in warm climates fibrous rooted types can also be planted in the garden bed. An English garden is not complete without the lovely Geranium, common garden geraniums, sometimes called zonal geraniums, and are tender perennials that don’t tolerate frost. Zonal geraniums and other members of the Pelargonium family are over-wintered indoors.

These beautiful plants as tender perennials won’t survive the winter outdoors in most areas, inexpensive bedding plants for many common varieties are available in spring, and it would seem easier to grow these geraniums as annuals discarding the plants at the end of the season. The options available if you want to grow geraniums, is take indoors for winter or dig up and plant them in pots big enough to hold the roots, or lastly take 3 to 4 inch cuttings from stem tips to pot up indoors.
