The Show is a great chance to celebrate your garden.
Bottles & Plates
Bring your own bottles or vases to display flowers (e.g. mason jars or wine bottles work well). The EHS is not responsible for loss or damage of these items. Only a few bottles will be available.
Paper plates will be provided to display fruits and vegetables.
For small blooms (like petunias and pansies) cover a shallow bowl/pie plate with foil, fill the bowl with water, cut a hole in the foil and hang the bloom in the foil. This keeps blossoms above water, healthy and smiling for the judges.
Make sure everything looks its best: no pests, disease, or blemishes. Clean vegetables and fruit. Trim appropriately.
Please provide plant names (including the variety).
When the class calls for more than one item, judges like uniformity. Look for the same sizes and shapes.
