    Having a problem with 200 red begonias not flowering. At the risk of tooting my own horn, we are known for putting in and maintaining some awesome flower displays but these begonias have me stumped. Yes we have gone from cool and wet to hot and dry in a couple of weeks. We did use starter plant fert for the first 2 weeks and them used Peters Superbloom every other week. The Peters stuff has always worked very well. Still very few flowers and the insects keep chewing on them even after spraying them every week. Anyone else having flower problems this season? Any advice is appreciated...thanks.ps The Durango marigolds are doing very well that were planted in amoung the Begonias...go figure.
