    Default Scented Begonias

    Are these really scented or is it mostly advertiser's puff?

    I'm very cynical as they are selling Fuchsia Blutini (it's an arborescens) as frost-hardy, which it isn't throughout the UK. These are a rip off at 22.50 for 2 9cm pots anyway as a 2 or 3lt one from Burncoose is 11.50 and 9cm from Lockyer is 5!

    Daily Telegraph Shop "in Association Hayloft", who in my experience sell very small plants, which need lots of nursing before they can be planted out.
