At the growers quality competition this year in the “Keukenhof” there were a lot of strong and beautiful entries. J & P ten Have BV from Maasland knows like no other how to present a flowering begonia at a show.
Two different begonia’s were competing for the award. These were the Betulia Pink and Borias. The jury chose the two-colored Borias as the winner of the award with a score of 9.50 points.
The leaf begonia’s were extremely special in quality and shapes. A great collection of about 25 entry made the choice for a winner very difficult. Not any of the entries scored lower than 9.0 points. The absolute winner was gained by firm Hoefnagels from Lent with the Begonia “Fireworks”. mKoppe bv from Ermelo had its best entry also in the Beleaf collection, the Begonia “Inca Fire” was good for 9.35 point with a very equal appearance.
