I am writing on behalf of the North East of England and Scottish Borders Begonia Society.
We have a catchment area from Dunbar to Bishop Auckland, and across to Hexham.
We are holding our Begonia Flower Show at Dobbies of Ponteland, next to Newcastle Airport, on the Sunday and Monday of the August Bank Holiday.
The competition is open to anyone, with 12 classes. One of our aims is to spread knowledge about growing these beautiful plants.
Information can be obtained from myself, Dobbies, or at www.national-begonia-society.co.uk
