How to Enter
HOW DO I ENTER A FLOWER SHOW?
1. Read the Flower Show Rules carefully to see what is required for each class. If you have any questions, call our Convener or Co-convener.
2. The night before the competition, or early in the morning, cut the flowers and immediately place in a bucket of warm water. Always cut one or two extra stems in case one gets damaged en route to the show.
3. Try to choose flowers that have fresh stamen and are roughly the same size with straight stems and fresh, undamaged foliage.
4. When entering a collection of cut flowers or herbs, choose several varieties, at least two of each, and list the varieties on a separate sheet and number them. The edge is often given to the exhibit with more varieties, provided all other requirements are met and the entry is in show condition.
5. Carefully groom and remove any damaged petals, foliage, bugs, pollen or spent blooms before exhibiting the specimen or houseplant.
6. Remember a bud showing colour is considered a bloom. So carefully disbud before exhibiting a single bloom.
7. Only self-foliage is permitted to be attached to the exhibit unless otherwise stated.
Enjoy the many things a flower show has to offer. You never know, your entry might just win a ribbon!

CARE OF CUT FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE
The terms hardening and conditioning refer to the care needed so that cut stem can fill up with water and prevent wilting. Store in cool, dark, draft-free place.
Cut stem on a slant for better water intake, preferably underwater. Place in pail of tepid water IMMEDIATELY (take pail to garden). Soak as much length of stem as possible, several hours or overnight. If hard stem, split upward of 1. If woody, (i.e. mums) scrape 2 at bottom, slit and hammer. If hollow stem (delph.) burn ends with flame to keep sap in, or hold stem in boiling water 1 minute. While in garden, dip stem in sand until you can treat. Cover bloom and foliage with bag when putting stem in boiling water. For decorative entries already conditioned, just re-cut stems. To carry flowers to Show, use pail with 1 water. Blooms that shatter easily are best transported in long cardboard box or picnic cooler, wrap stem in wet towel, rest necks on a cardboard roll.
