Horticulture Rules (revised 7/14)

1. Plants should be groomed and entry cards completed before
taking the entry to the Passing table. The exhibitor should
remain with her entry until it has been passed. The exhibit
will then be staged where it is to be judged by a committee
2. Plants must be well groomed and containers clean before
exhibiting. A plant not suitable for judging shall be placed
in an “exhibition only” class.
3. All entries, unless otherwise stated, must be grown by the
exhibitor for a minimum of three (3) months.
4. Three entries of different varieties are allowed in each
division of a class.
5. Anyone wishing to exhibit horticulture other than the
scheduled class may do so in the Par Class.
6. All specimens in a collection must be labeled individually.
7. Container grown plants, grown primarily for foliage, shall
be classified as such even when in bloom.
8. Double potting is permitted. Top dressing should cover the
rim of the inner pot so that the entry appears to be in a
single pot.
