The Magic of Begonias

Here are two examples of the magical charm that begonias can bring – there are many varieties from Black Magic to White Magic.

  • Do they hold mysterious supernatural powers?
  • No, but their growers are wise and worship their plants to make them grow and good enough to show.

Stay tuned for the next exciting virtual begonia show, happening soon. The results and all exhibits will be unveiled after the ‘Members Only’ October Virtual Vote competition. We’ll then take you on a magical mystery tour and that’s an inivitation.
