HANDY HINTS FOR NEW EXHIBITORS

General advice for exhibiting:

When you arrive at the church, entry cards will be on the table next to the front door for you to collect and place next to your exhibit(s).

Where a class asks for a small number of blooms, the idea is to position them so that they all face forwards. You can do this by using one of the vases provided on the day and scrunching up newspaper (also provided) inside it to hold the stems in place.

You’ll see from the rules that all exhibits, even the tiny ones, have to be arranged in the hall itself.

There are tables available to work on and bins for your debris, but it would be a good idea to bring your own scissors.

Information which might help you to choose or prepare exhibits:

Classes requiring small groups of one thing you’ve grown: Choose specimens which are as uniform in size and shape as you can manage.

Multiple-flowered stems (other than in arrangements): The idea is that as many as possible of the flowers are open, but you can neatly snip off spent blooms if you wish.

Tomatoes: Leave the tops and a bit of stem on the fruit. Bring some sand (or vermiculite, etc.) to spread on the paper plate provided, so that your exhibit can stand up and be arranged to look its best.

Fruit: Include a bit of stalk and don’t polish off the bloom, which is regarded as part of the fruit.

Classes involving maximum dimensions: Don’t forget to bring your ruler on the day.
