Do you ever wonder “Why did that design or horticulture specimen win the Blue Ribbon?” Are you interested in learning about “growing and showing” horticulture or the elements and principles of floral design? If so, Flower Show School will be the answer!
The Federated Garden Clubs of CT, Inc. (FGCCT) is pleased to offer the National Garden Clubs, Inc. Flower Show School. The curriculum is divided into a series of four individual courses, and is open to any Garden Club member. NGC provides the educational opportunity through its Flower Show Schools (FSS) Program whereby its members may become Accredited Flower Show Judges or attend sessions merely to enrich their knowledge of horticulture, design, and flower show procedure.
