Guidelines:

Judges Choice Horticulture - March 2015 By Marie Decker

Judges Choice Horticulture – March 2015 By Marie Decker

  • Exhibitors are allowed three entries in each class, provided each specimen is a different cultivar/ variety/species.
  • All entries must be grown by the exhibitor.
  • The Society provides uniform containers for all cut material unless otherwise specified in the schedule. However, members may choose to provide their own vases. For very tall material, e.g., delphinium, large iris, or large branch the exhibitor should bring his or her own container.
  • Specimens must be shown with their own attached foliage only.
  • Where 3 specimens of the same cultivar are asked for, the specimens should be uniform, free of disease or insect damage and at an appropriate stage of maturity.
  • Where a definite number of specimens is specified, that number must be adhered to.
  • Buds showing colour are considered blooms.
  • When a height limit is specified for an annual or perennial, this refers to the growing height of the plant not the cut length of the specimen.
  • Houseplants must have been in the possession of the exhibitor for at least three months prior to the show and must not be shown more than once in any six-month period.
  • Potted plants may have only one cultivar per pot unless stated otherwise.
  • Plants should be clean and well-groomed. Insect-infested or diseased entries will be removed from the show.
  • Scarce, protected, endangered native plants or poisonous plants will be disqualified. Refer to: Government of Ontario, Ministry of Natural Resources “Endangered Species Act”. Refer to ontatrio.ca/speciesatrisk
  • The quality or condition of the exhibit at the time of judging is an important factor. Try to make sure the exhibit is fresh, free of blemishes, with dead leaves and flowers removed.

Please Note:

All show entries — design, horticulture, photography — must be in place in the upstairs hall by 7:20 pm, prior to commencement of judging.
