Jack Larter has been growing and showing tuberous begonias for more than twenty years. Although growing all types of tuberous begonias, he specializes in growing the large, cut blooms to exhibit on the boards at competitive summer flower shows. This culminated in him winning the National Championship Twelve Board class at Birmingham 2007. He is the North West Area Representative for the National Begonia Society and a member of the Scottish Begonia Society, and regularly gives presentations at area meetings in both England and Scotland.
