Flower Show Handbook

Handbook for Flower Shows
Growing & Designing, Staging & Exhibiting, Judging, Revised 2007
The Handbook for Flower Shows (Handbook) provides information for garden club members interested in hosting a flower show. It gives suggestions and requirements of a Standard Flower Show eligible for awards. The Handbook stipulates the types of awards that may be presented to each type of flower show and awards available to individual exhibitors. For those interested in exhibiting horticulture specimens, suggestions are offered on how to prepare entries and how they are judged. Floral designers can learn the history of design and the abundant variety of design styles available for exhibition. Requirements for becoming and continuing as a NGC Accredited Flower Show Judge conclude the Handbook. This plethora of information is currently under revision with expected completion in 2017. Copies of the current Handbook for Flower Show can be obtained through the NGC on-line store:
