Getting Ready For The Flower Show

Members of the Wellington Garden Club met recently to learn how to best prepare plants to be entered in “Tropical Heat Wave,” a standard flower show. In the show’s Horticulture Division, member-grown plants must be in perfect condition to win a ribbon: no brown spots on leaves, the right-sized container, etc. — the rules are strict. Come to the flower show to see the orchids, begonias, bromeliads and succulents perfectly presented and judged by accredited National Garden Club judges. Have your gardening questions answered by master gardeners. Listen to speakers and see demonstrations. April 14 and 15 at the Mall at Wellington Green. Admission is free. Shown above (L-R) are Lisa Ferraro, Twig Morris, Stormi Bivin, Ann Finch, Petra Russell and Mary Drexler. Photo by Deb Russell
