Judging: The Friday morning of the Fair
(Updated March 2, 2017)

As we are celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday, we have asked the exhibitor to use either red or white flowers (reflecting the Red and White colours of our flag) in some of our classes.


a) Entry Fee is 10% of prize money
b) All entries must be received from 6 – 9 pm the Thursday prior to the Fair opening.
c) All exhibits are open to amateur gardeners only.
d) All plants must have been in the possession of the exhibitor for a minimum of three months to qualify as having been grown by the exhibitor.
e) Do not use containers of value, as the Fair Board cannot be responsible for loss of containers.
f) The use of Loosestrife is prohibited.
g) All rules of the fair shall apply.


Hints for exhibitors:

  • All exhibits should be attractively arranged.
  • Use sturdy containers for tall flowers (ie. Gladiolas).
  • No pot should exceed 12” unless otherwise stated.
  • Flowers to be shown with foliage where ever possible as points are given for foliage on the flower exhibited.
  • Flowers should be as uniform as possible.
  • Make sure to measure the diameter or height of the exhibit. (ie. Blooms where applicable)
  • The exhibit should contain the exact number of stems, blooms, flowers, or leaves specified.
  • Grooming makes for a more attractive exhibit. Removal of wilted petals, chewed leaves, debris on or in the pot, pollen, or dust is advised.
  • Do not leave seed heads on the exhibit.
  • For taller stems and larger containers cedar may be used to hold the stems in place. The cedar used as a filler must not show above the container level.
  • A bloom is an individual flower; one per stem.
  • A stem is a plant structure carrying one or more flowers and or buds. If a bud is not open and not showing any colour it does not count as a bloom and it is a good idea to remove it.
  • A spray is a portion of plant with numerous flowers.


Read carefully the requirements for each class: i.e. if a specimen is to be 3 inches and under, it is advisable to measure the blooms; try to exhibit blooms of the same size.
