This is a picture of the new Begonia “Icemint” at Bellcross. My friend Stan was sent this phot by Margaret Watson who runs “Bellcross Nurseries” a small nurseries specialising in Begonias. We have both requested cuttings from the plant, if there are enough available, fingers crossed.
Also ordered from there is a Begonia called “Emily Rose” (i have a niece with the same name, and if i can get that variety i would like to give them one). Also Whispers, Begonia.
I have ordered a new variety from Blackmore & Langdon, i think it was called Mia, but looking on there web site it seems to have been taken off, perhaps they have sold out now – good job i placed the order for that one early. Also i have just ordered an older yellow variety called “Midas”.
To try and improve my foilage Begonia varieties i have placed an order with Dibleys – “Escargot” “Fireworks” & “Rocheart”
I don’t think Bellcross has a web site, but the others have:
