Notes for exhibitors:


 Cut blooms with plenty of stem, even if you have to sacrifice a bud or bloom.

 Name blooms whenever possible. Neat naming will count in your favour in a close competition.

 Don’t crowd your blooms, they don’t like it and neither do the judges.

 Dahlia exhibitors are advised to measure blooms before submitting entries.  Rings are available on the morning of the show for final checking.

 Make sure your pots are clean.

 Check your entry form thoroughly and hand to Show Secretary or Assistant Show Secretary.

 All pots are to be round excluding classes 18, 22, 23, 24, 28 and 29 where other shapes are permitted.
