Entry Rules and Procedures

  • Entries will be judged based on quality, condition, cleanliness, trueness to type and variety, maturity, size, and color.
  • The Fair will provide vases for cut flowers.
  • Cut flowers should be entered just as the flower with enough stem to support the blossom and all foliage and thorns removed from stems to first bud, cluster, or flower (unless individual class dictates otherwise)
  • Potted, container-grown plants should be well groomed with no seed pods, wilted flowers, damaged or unclean foliage, broken stems, or training props. The container should be clean and in scale with the rest of the plant. 
  • Exhibits entered in the Container Division will be judged based on the quality of all plants, design and creativity, color, and appropriateness of the container in relation to the arrangement. 
  • For plants which require special care for the duration of the Fair, please coordinate with Fair staff and Department Superintendent. 


Entries for the purpose of display and education only are welcomed, encouraged, and will not be judged.
