Plants Under The Spotlight

Begonia

Commonly grown as annuals or perennials, Begonia is a genus that consists of more than 1,800 species and over 10,000 cultivars.

It’s a reasonably hardy plant which means it’s ideally suited to the growing conditions in the UK. That said – it won’t survive frost. Many species can be grown indoors where you can enjoy stunning foliage year-round.
