DIVISION G - FLOWER DEPARTMENT

Superintendent: Mavis Lage, Bev Buschette

Entry hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., July 27th, 2016.  Judging starts at 6:30 pm.  You are invited to watch the judging and quietly listen to the comments.

 

1.  All flowers must be grown and entered by the exhibitor, including flowers used in arrangements.  Make sure you enter the number of specimens requested.  Containers can be supplied for all cut flowers, but containers and accessories for arrangements must be provided by the exhibitor.  If you would like to bring your own container for your cut flowers it must be a clear glass vase.  There is no limit to number of entries.

2.  For best display, condition all flowers.  Cut your flowers early in the morning using a sharp knife, cut on a slant, place immediately in warm water, and place in a cool area away from any drafts to harden.  Cut stems as long as possible, leaving foliage for a natural effect, but remove all foliage that will be below the water line on the container.  Stems with sticky sap should be singed on the cut edge or sealed by placing lower end of stem in boiling water for 1-2 minutes.  Woody stems should be crushed to increase water intake during display.  All horticulture specimens must be grown by the exhibitor and houseplants, hanging baskets, terrariums, and dish gardens must be in the exhibitors possession for at least three months.

3.  Cut flowers should be uniform in size, shape and color.  Remove soil, bruised leaves and petals, or any sign of disease or insect damage.  Please label plants and give varieties if possible.

4.  Glads should be straight of stem showing 1/3 open, 1/3 showing color and 1/3 buds.  The use of a prop to hold larger flowers upright makes for better exhibit. 

5.  May enter up to 2 entries per lot.

Grand Champion Ribbons will be awarded to the top exhibit in each Class.  These ribbons will be furnished by the Lake Region Garden Club.

Country Fields Greenhouse, Detroit Lakes, will give a $15.00 gift certificate to the winner of the Sweepstakes Award.  Two points for a white ribbon, three points for a red ribbon, five points for a blue ribbon, ten points for a Champion ribbon.

Lake Region Garden Club will also five a $10.00 gift certificate as a memorial for their deceased members of their club.  This year the award will be for the Gladiolous.  2017 will be Cosmos,any color.

6.  An exhibitor may enter more than one horticultural specimen in a single class, provided each entry is of a different named variety.

7.  The use of wild flowers listed as protected in the state of MN is prohibited.  Included are Lady Slipper, Trillium, Arbutus, Lotus, Gentian, and Wild Lily.  If the judge discovers a protected plant or plant parts inadvertently displayed, the judge must notify the fairboard and the exhibit must be removed from public display.

8.  Noxious weeds are not to be used.  There are ten plants declared noxious weeds according to the Agronomy Services Division of the MDA:  Field Bindweed, Hemp, Purple Loosestrife, Poison Ivy, Canadian Thistle, Musk Thistle, Plumeless Thistle.

9.  Prepare your designs and other exhibits before you arrive at the show so only a minimum amount of time is needed in the work area.

10.  If you want to recycle your ribbons, please leave them after the show with show superintendents or at the fair office.
