Can I save my begonias?

Being the not so expert gardener and forgetful to check its preferences, I  put my begonias in full glare of the sun which I now know a few don't like..

Here are my 3 begonias

I put them in multi purpose compost. They are getting most of direct sunlight through the day.



  • You have answered you own question-got them in a more shaded spot-perhaps a sheltered wall outside??-but protect on cold nightsimage

    not sure what i'm doing wrong, but they're in a sun room on the front of my house, should they be in shade?

    I suppose I did, but wasn't sure if it was a disease or not image

    I have put two in a hanging basket where it gets 2 hours max in the sun and the rest in shade. Unfortunatly one of the begonias roots had rotted when I got it out where it was planted. Fingers crossed they live now.

    Would it hurt to give them some tomato feed to boost them up?
