Horticulture, Cut Specimens - Classes 15-31

Anchoring the Horticulture division, cut specimens cover multiple classes from tiny perennial flowers with a single stem to generous trees with several trunks.  The art of horticulture involves the practice of garden cultivation and management.  To cultivate is to promote or improve the growth of a plant by labor and attention.  Here in Gallery 214, trees, shrubs, climbers, vines, fruits, herbs, and cut collections are on view.  And to compete in this division, exhibitors must have owned and grown their plants for at least six months.  Vegetables are also included here and require only a three month ownership.  Exhibits are limited to 26” and no leaf polish or commercial foliage enhancers can be used.
