The NBS were again invited to
the exhibition days at Ball Colegrave. 10 members of the society
attended. There were not as many trial begonias as last year as Fred
Yates had retired (raiser of million Kisses, Bon Bon and Truffle series)
and Denis Need had not supplied anything. However there were the new
scented series Citrus and English Rose and all the Northern Lights
series. Begonias were well represented generally. Possible new releases
were on display.
