How big a pot would I need?

I have three white trailing begonias.
How big a container would I need if I put them all in together. I have a variety of large pots and they are reasonably deep. Would this make a difference?
They are in individual half litre pots at the moment .

    You can grow trailing begonias in hanging baskets (given enough water and feeding) so I don't think they need an enormous container. As long as you can fit the three plants in with a bit of growing room, I think they'll be fine. Maybe something like 12" or 14" diameter. No need for huge depth. If your pot is deep you could maybe fill the bottom part with old spent compost instead of using all new.
