Judges Council members are willing to assist any club to plan and stage a Flower Show.  Contact Judges Council Chair, Trish Manfredi, judgescouncilchair@ctgardenclubs.org  well in advance of a show you’re planning to have an advisor assigned to your club for assistance.

The NGC Handbook for Flower Shows – 2017 edition (hard bound and digital versions available) and Horticulture Exhibiting and Judging are helpful for flower show planning.  They can be order at: www.shopgardenclub.org

Plant material which should NOT be included in any Flower Show are any plants on the following lists:

Not permitted in CT per Committee: coral, starfish, sponges, sea fans, or collected bird nests; and cut fruits or vegetables even if sealed. Whole fruits and vegetables are allowed.
