  • HOW DO I ENTER A FLOWER SHOW?1. Read the Flower Show Rules carefully to see what is required for eachclass. If you have any questions, call our Convener or Co-Convener.

    2. The night before the competition, or early in the morning, cut the flowersand immediately place in a bucket of warm water. Always cut one or twoextra stems in case one gets damaged en route to the show.

    3. Try to choose flowers that have fresh stamen and are roughly the samesize with straight stems and fresh, undamaged foliage.

    4. When entering a collection of cut flowers or herbs, choose severalvarieties, at least two of each, and list the varieties on a separate sheet andnumber 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, pollenor spent blooms before exhibiting the specimen or houseplant.

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 atbottom, slit and hammer. If hollow stem (delph.) burn ends with flame to keep sap in, or hold stemin boiling water 1 minute.

    While in garden, dip stem in sand until you can treat. Cover bloomand 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 orpicnic cooler, wrap stem in wet towel, rest necks on a cardboard roll.
