outdoor begonias

Zone Unin NJ 0783 | maryc711 added on June 14, 2017 | Answered

I have an outdoor hanging basket of begonias. The blooms have died off. Is that it for the season or can I get it to bloom again? Would bringing it indoors help

Removing the spent flowers or deadheading will encourage the plant to rebloom. If you are fertilizing you begonias use a product lower in nitrogen and higher in phosphorus and potash to encourage new flower development. I have had great success with water soluble fertilizers like super bloom.
