Society Shows

The Society holds an Annual National Show with upwards of 26 classes for begonias including novice, intermediate, and open sections.  In addition five or six areas hold somewhat smaller shows for the special benefit of their area members (but open to all Society members).  The committee will also consider applications for the sponsoring of begonia classes in other shows.

Exhibiting, or even just getting involved in a Show by helping is a great way to meet fellow Society members, begonia growers and enthusiasts.  It is also an excellent way to learn more about growing these beautiful plants.
    If you intend to exhibit then you will want to try and have your begonias at their best when they are on the Show bench.  This means getting the timing right and transporting them without damage.  The aim is to have the plants at their peak  "on the bench on the day"
