May is a great time to plant flowers in the garden or on a balcony. Frosts are no longer a threat, and proper sunlight guarantees favorable conditions for growth. How should you proceed to enjoy beautiful begonias?

Many people tidied up their gardens in March and April. In May, however, it is time to plant. Begonias can be grown in the garden or in pots on the balcony or terrace. This flower likes a lot of light but cannot be grown directly in the sun as it risks getting burned.

The soil should be permeable, fertile, and slightly acidic. Begonias rot easily, so control the moisture level.

Typically, begonias are watered 1-2 times a day. It is worth carefully checking if the plant has enough water.

Magical fertilizer: begonias will be stunning!

What can be done to make the stems bend under the weight of new flowers? It turns out that yeast fertilizer works perfectly here. To prepare it, you only need yeast, sugar, and water.

Cover the baker's yeast with sugar and then pour warm water over it. Wait for everything to dissolve and mix. You can water the flowers with the ready solution. Use the fertilizer once every two weeks.

It has been noted that such fertilization results in more vigorous plant growth and stimulates flowering. Moreover, it facilitates the uptake of minerals from the soil, stimulates root system development, and protects against fungi.
