Welcome to the Begonias Victoria website.

Our meetings include informative guest speakers, cultural information, demonstrations and sometimes visits to members gardens.  Discussion between growers is an important element of our meetings which are normally preceded by a barbecue lunch.

There are often begonia plants grown by our members available for purchase as well as books which our society has produced.  Membership also receive the publication Begonia Australis  quarterly.  A bi-monthly newsletter from the society is also provided.


The VBS Society is no longer active.  

Growers of Tuberous begonias are encouraged to join the Tuberous Begonias Australia,  Facebook page. 


Due to falling membership and the advancing years of our members, the Victorian Begonia Society has been formally disbanded from the 1st  December 2023.

The Society acknowledges the extraordinary work of many people associated with the VBS for several decades.

This Begonias Victoria website will continue to be active for the time being as a valuable resource for people who wish to explore the joys of growing these amazing plants.

Members and growers in Victoria are encouraged to join the Melbourne Begonia Society.
