ADDITIONAL RULES AND HELPFUL HINTS:

NOTE:  Flower stems should be cut on an angle late Tuesday or early Wednesday and put in ample warm water for several hours before arrangining.

See RULES for SPECIAL CONDITIONING.

In the Desigin Section, use ONLY frest plant material. Flowers may be obtained from any source.

No plastic, silk or artificially coloured flowers are permitted.

 

1.      Entries entered in Classes 180, 181, & 183 must have been grown by the exhibitor.

2.      In Class 183, potted plants must have been in the possession of the exhibitor for at least three (3) months prior to the show.

3.      A bud showing colour is considered a bloom. Therefore, carefully remove any extra buds if only one bloom is called for.

4.      Please use a CLEAN, CLEAR GLASS CONTAINER that is in proportion to the size of flower that you are entering. For example DO NOT place a large entry in a small container. Also place short stem flowers in a small container.

5.      Make sure the stems are straight and the same length. The leaves should be uniform in size when exhibiting 3 or more stems. The flowers should also be the same shape and size when entering more than one.

THE JUDGE LOOKS FOR UNIFORMITY, STRAIGHT STEMS AND CLEAN, UNDAMAGED FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE. THAT MEANS THERE SHOULD BE NO MARKS ON THE PETALS AND/OR FOLIAGE. CAREFULLY REMOVE ANY BLOOMS THAT ARE NO LONGER FRESH. REMOVE FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE THAT HAVE HOLES IN THEM.

6.      CLEAN PLANT MATERIAL IS IMPORTANT. Please remove any insects, insect homes or dust from plant material. To remove dust and debris, gently brush with a make-up brush. Some foliage can be washed in lukewarm water.

7.      We reserve the right to change the class and/or section number on any entry except designs, if we find entry has been put into the wrong section. This will benefit the exhibitor for points.

8.      We reserve the right to remove any entry if we find the entry is full of bugs,

9.      Remove any foliage below water level as it will rot.

10.     Do not add additional foliage to the entry unless it is called for.

11.     Gladiola are judged as 1/3 open, 1/3 showing colour and 1/3 still to open.

12.     DO NOT let your accessories dominate your display or design.

 

 

CONDITIONING PLANT MATERIAL

Sear the cut ends of dahlia, gallardia, campanula, or bachelor buttons.

THIS HELPS PROLONG THE LIFE OF THE FLOWER FOR A FOUR DAY SHOW.
