@angiecrazycatlady I think it was you that asked me about whether #begonia-luxurians has flowers... Well just to confirm they do and they're teeny tiny 🕵️

Oh so it does, very pretty too, but with foliage that good it really doesn't need flowers 😍

I've managed to root just the one from a stem cutting @suerichards but I know it will be a begger to overwinter. It's very fussy

I don't often photograph this but #begonia-luxurians which is another tender tropical plant has been dug up ready to go in the greenhouse 💚

I love this. I saw someone else post a pic of one recently. Did you grow it from seed? Does it flower? 😊

Apparently it has creamy yellow flowers in spring @angiecrazycatlady I bought it as a plant but they are absolute beggars to keep going over winter. Lost one indoors last year. Will be trying it in the greenhouse this year

Oh really, I'm only just getting into tropical plants so maybe I won't chance this one yet. I'm hoping to get some bananas and cannas next year. My daughter is moving and I'm going to help her to make a little tropical paradise in her new garden 😊

That will be lovely. Can I suggest totally hardy tropical looking plants as opposed to needing several greenhouses to keep them going 😆😜😀 @angiecrazycatlady

That's what I thought as my daughter likes to see a nice garden but isn't a gardener by any stretch, any suggestions for some big impact starter plants 😆
