Join us for good food, wonderful friends and unending education at Exhibitors andJudges School #5, Friday & Saturday, June 23-24, at the Crowne Plaza ColumbusNorth-Worthington, 6500 Doubletree Lane, Columbus. 

Back by popular demand is the simulated flower show! The artistic design portion will consist of four classes, including classes for novice, traditional, creative and choice. You can participate but only if you register for the school.

An exciting innovation to Plant Identification will actively involve you in hands-on demonstrations. Learn to develop your observation skills to describe the horticulture specimens. This will replace the horticulture part of the simulated flower show. The plant identification list and PowerPoint will be emailed to registrants prior to the school.

Creative Designs II will be demonstrated and discussed at School #5. Our talented designers will be presenting exhibits that are partially completed or include a “fault.” They will finish the designs or correct the faults while addressing the elements and principles of design and answering your questions.

No matter how you pronounce Bonsai, you will learn about the history, cultivation and maintenance practices of this unique living art.

Bring horticulture specimens from your garden including those on the plant identification list and enter your name in the drawing for a free day at E&J School #6.

Other topics include growing and showing roses, hostas, bromeliads, and African violets. Learn what makes a good educational display and how to include it in your flower show schedule.

Vendors will provide an amazing selection of plants and supplies for gardeners.

Encourage your friends to come with you! Consider becoming a student judge or suggest this to others.
