Virtual Presentation

Suitable for beginning and intermediate Begonia enthusiasts

To register,  click here.

Begonias are a diverse and sometimes challenging group of plants to grow.  There are approximately 2,000 species and 15,000 recognized hybrids.  One would be hard-pressed to not find at least one they would like to grow! Christina will take us through her collection to demonstrate the diversity in the genus as well as culture and care.  The focus of the presentation will be to help those who have not had success with begonias in the past to demystify their secrets.

 

As the current President of the Delaware Valley Branch of the American Begonia Society, Christina VanWyk will be discussing the basic principals of successful begonia growing.  Christina has been gardening for over 25 years.  Christina is a Penn State Extension Middlesex County Master Gardener, Committee chair of the American Begonia Society virtual education committee, volunteer at Rutgers Gardens, and former passing chair of the Philadelphia Flower Show.  Her love affair with begonias began about 20 years ago when she purchased her first plant at the Philadelphia flower show.
