A Flower Show is More than Flowers
Flower Shows celebrate the vibrant connection between people, plants and nature. Exhibitors create designs, grow and nurture, photograph and research. Each exhibit follows a set of guidelines and are judged by nationally recognized judges from across the country. A description of the guidelines, judging criteria and the judges’ comments are included with the exhibits.
