Rules
 

Special Rules for Vegetables, Fruit and Flowers

  1. Read Schedule carefully, noting particularly the section in which you intend to compete.

  2. Note the number and specification of items to be shown in each class, including size of container; non compliance will lead to disqualification.

  3. Exhibits will be judged by their qualities and not their size. Uniformity in size is important.

  4. All vegetables should be properly presented and cleaned for exhibition. While roots should be very carefully washed, in no circumstances should oil or any similar substance be used.

  5. In all classes where cut material is shown, all stems must reach the water in the vase or receptacle. Vases and plates etc. must be provided by exhibitors, unless otherwise stated.

  6. The diameter of a Plant Pot or Pan is the INSIDE measurement made as near the top as possible. A vase must be taller than it is wide at its widest point.

Floral Arrangements

  1. An exhibit is composed of natural plant material, with or without accessories, contained within a space as specified in the Show Schedule. Backgrounds, bases, containers, drapes, exhibit titles and mechanics may always be included in an exhibit, unless otherwise stated. More than one placement may always be included, unless otherwise stated. In all exhibits natural plant material should dominate.

  2. Fresh plant material should have the cut ends of stems or roots in water or water retaining material.  EXCEPTIONS: Air plants, cacti, fruits, grass turf, lichen, moss, succulents, vegetables and long lasting plant material (including string fibrous stems) which will remain turgid for the duration of the show.

  3. Aids to hold plant material in place are allowed but should not be seen.

  4. Driftwood is natural wood which has been weathered by the natural elements (air, earth, fire or water).

  1. The Top Vase class is for a vase of mixed flowering stems containing a total of between five and ten stems, taken from a minimum of two different kinds of plants.  Please note that is two different KINDS of plants, two varieties of the same genera are NOT two kinds.

  2. The display will be judged out of a total of 35 points, split into: 25 points for the colour, form, condition, quality and freshness of the flowers on display, and 10 points for the overall presentation and effect of the flowers in the vase. The vase will be viewed from all directions. Judging of the flowers should be to normal Royal Horticultural Society rules.

  3. Stems used in the display must be showing fresh home-grown flowers only; no dried flowers, seed heads or berries are allowed.

  4. The vase can be any shape and size and made from any material, but must be in proportion to the display. No marks are awarded for the vase itself.
