Hints for Exhibitors in the Flower Class

  • All exhibits should be arranged attractively

  • Cut flowers are to be shown with long stem and where possible, with foliage

  • For taller stems and larger containers, the use of cedar is recommended to hold the stems in place. Note: Cedar is used as a filler and is not to show above the container edge

  • Flowers should be as uniform as possible

  • A spray is a portion of the plant, with a number of flowers

  • A stem is a plant structure, carrying one or more flowers and/or buds

  • A bloom is an individual flower, one to a stem

  • If a bud is not opened and not showing any colour, it does not count as a bloom and it is a good idea to remove it

  • Exhibit(s) must contain the exact number of flowers specified in the section

  • Do not leave seed heads in the exhibit

  • Watch for wilted petals

  • Remove debris from the pot

  • Flowers and Plants must be insect and disease free to be eligible for judging

  • In dahlia classes, green centres should not be showing and the blooms should be approximately 45 degrees from the stem

  • Ideal gladiolus should be 1/3 open, 1/3 bud, 1/3 green, please use a tall sturdy container

  • A snapdragon may have more than one spike, (note what is specified for the section)

  • African violets should contain only a single crown in a pot

  • In a floral arrangement, the large flowers and strong colours should be at the base
