SECTION B: FLORAL ART

Notes and definitions for show schedules are from the

BC Council of Garden Clubs Floral Design and Judging and Exhibiting Standards Manual.

EXHIBITS: An exhibit is composed of natural plant material, with or without accessories, contained within a space as specified in the schedule. Backgrounds, bases, containers, drapes, exhibit titles and mechanics may always be included in an exhibit, unless otherwise stated.

More than one placement may always be included, unless otherwise stated.

In all exhibits natural plant material must predominate. Natural Plant Material includes: fresh, dried, garden, wild, or made-up plant material, flowers, foliage, fruit, vegetables and seaweed. All may be additionally coloured.

The following are the only reasons for disqualification:

1. Failure to comply with any specific requirement of a class as stated in a show schedule, e.g. the measurements of the components.

2. Inclusion of fresh material that does not have roots or the cut ends of stems in water or water retaining material. Exceptions: air plants, cacti, fruits, grass, turf, lichen, moss, succulents, vegetables and long lasting plant material (including strong fibrous stems) which will remain turgid for the duration of the show (definition of turgid: the state of firmness of plant tissue resulting from adequate moisture, causing the plant cells to be fully expanded).

3. Inclusion of artificial plant material (unless specifically allowed by a show schedule).

DESIGN: A floral design consists of fresh cut materials, in a container, with a base if necessary. It may also include dried, weathered, or treated material with or without accessories, with or without fresh cut material. No artificial flowers allowed.

OPEN CLASS: Open to all

SIZE OF DESIGNS: When a maximum size of design is specified: for example ‘design not to exceed 30” in any one direction’ – this is measured from the table top vertically and/or across the design from flower tip to flower tip horizontally in all directions. If you are over the maximum size the Judge may disqualify your design. For all other classes that do not specify a maximum size the limit for the arrangement is 24“wide by 36“tall. A fabric covered backdrop of these dimensions may be used if desired but is optional.

Important Note: This is a judged show. As a competitor it is your responsibility to read the schedule carefully to understand the requirements of each class. Consult the dictionary, flower arranging books and magazines, and websites to refine your concept and design ideas. Good Luck!

CLASSES: (Please Note)

• Maximum size allowed for all exhibits is 24”x36” unless otherwise specified.
