The Scottish Begonia Society National Show
Held at the
Dundee Flower and Food Festival  2017
Camperdown Country Park, Coupar Angus Road, Dundee DD2 4TF

This year with the demise of the Ayr Flower Show at Rossell Park the SBS Annual Show was held at Dundee as part of the show at Camperdown Park. However there was a reduced schedule this year as result of timescales.  

The begonia classes were in the main well contended with most of the top growers exhibiting to support their society. This year the British Championship 12 board winner was Tony Shepherdson from Newcastle closely followed by Phil Champion who was second, John Hamilton third, George Thompson fourth and Ronnie welsh fifth. This win by Tony followed his success at NBS Shrewsbury Show and he holds the British Championship, The National Championship and The Scottish 6 board championship a very successful year, congratulations.

The 4ft x 4ft group was well contested with Bruce Mcleod taking the honours. Bert Nelson was second and Bob Robertson third. 

All in all a good first show at the new venue. The SBS committee should be commended for their considerable efforts both in arranging a new venue and all their considerable efforts at the show. Well done to all who supported the Scottish Begonia Society. Onward and upwards for next year! 

Tony Shepherdson was undoubtedly the man of the show and set the standard for next year.
