HINTS FOR EXHIBITORS: A stem is a plant structure carrying one or more flowers and/or buds. A bloom is an individual flower, one to a stem. If a bud is showing colour, it counts as a bloom and it is a good idea to remove it. Cut flowers are to be shown on long stems with foliage, if possible. Flowers should be as uniform in size as possible. Make sure to measure the diameter of the blooms and enter the proper size. Cedar can be used to hold stems in place but must not be visible above the container level.
Do not use containers of value.

All entries must be grown by the exhibitor; except Sections 45 to 57.
All flowers must be fresh unless otherwise stated.

TIPS TO EXHIBITORS: Generally, the following characteristics are desirable in all types of horticultural exhibits:
Colour: Bright, clean, attractive
Condition: Free from blemishes caused by insects, disease, dirt, mechanical damage and showing evidence of good culture & grooming
Quality: Specimens should be of the highest quality
Size: Should be moderate, not large, but always according to the variety
Trueness to Type: As true to variety or type specified as possible
Uniformity: As nearly uniform in size, colour, form, shape & maturity as possible.
