Tuberous Begonias An Essential Guide by Jack Larter

Tuberous begonias are sensational flowers: their abundant blooms capture everyone's heart and eye. This authoritative guide introduces the best varieties and celebrates the great range of colours grown. Written by Jack Larter, who has devoted many years of love and toil to the plants, it covers everything that both novice and veteran need to know to grow blooms for the home, garden and show bench.


Jack has drawn together all the pearls of wisdom gathered over the years into one concise guide. His step-by-step progressions through a season's growing is masterly. --Margaret Watson, Bellcross Nurseries

About the Author

Jack Larter has been growing and showing tuberous begonias for more than twenty years. Although growing all types of tuberous begonias, he specializes in growing the large, cut blooms to exhibit on the boards at competitive summer flower shows. This culminated in him winning the National Championship Twelve Board class at Birmingham 2007. He is the North West Area Representative for the National Begonia Society and a member of the Scottish Begonia Society, and regularly gives presentations at area meetings in both England and Scotland.
