Horticulture Guidelines for Passing

Before entering the passing line, be sure all of the following are completed:

  • Exhibit groomed with no dust, dirt or excess pollen on stems, front and back of leaves, flower (if applicable). 

  • Wedging complete and discreet, so it doesn't obstruct the exhibit.

  • A clean clear glass container appropriate for the size of the exhibit. (For example, a narrow mouthed vase for a small stem.) 

  • A propagated plant must be accompanied by a completed GCA Horticulture Propagation Card, explaining how you grew it, date and method of propagation.

  • Your entry card completed with:

1.    Your entry number

2.    Class you are entering

3.    Your name

4.    Botanical name: Genus capitalized, species not capitalized, Cultivar (if there is one) in single quotes  (Example: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Ruby Slippers')

5.    Common name (Example: Oakleaf Hydrangea 'Ruby Slippers')   

 

If you need help with any of these items please go directly to the help desk. Do not go to the passing line.
