Floriculture Exhibits
Department G
Guidelines:
    1. All entries must follow exhibiting rules and regulations given on page 1.
    2. Please identify each Horticulture entry, either by a temporary label on the container or with a list,
            to be read out as the entries are handed in.  Don't enter an unknown plant.  Any entry wrongly
            identified will not be judged.
    3. Horticulture entries will be exhibited as a specimen, only one bloom, spike, stem or stalk (which
            may carry multiple flowers.)  Leaves which will be under water must be removed.  You may not
            exhibit dried material.
    4. Judges need to see the stem, so use a colorless, label-free container.  If
            necessary, wrap the stem with enough paper or plastic to hold the flower head above the rim of
            the container.
    5. Please use appropriate containers; a small flower in a small container, for example; heavy
            sunflowers in big jars weighted with stones so as not to tip over.
    6. An Award of Merit of $10 will be given for the best Horticultural exhibit in each section:  Adult,
            Senior Youth and Junior Youth.
    7. The more entries the better!  A Sweepstakes award of $5 will be given to the adult, senior and
            junior exhibitor having most points in combined Horticulture and Artistic classes.  Blue--5
            points; red--3 points; white--2 points.
