Join us on our fun adventure as we continue to enhance Exhibitors’ and Judges’ Schools this year!

We are excited about the addition of the flower show at E&J School #3 May 20-21.

Participants wrote the flower show schedule at the last school and now you can enter your spring blooming horticultural exhibits and artistic designs. We continue to present opportunities for both new and seasoned exhibitors.

Proposed topics/speakers for School #3 are:

  • Our very talented growers and instructors Joann Graham and Juanita Wilkins will bring the Spring season indoors with their presentations on Iris and Peonies. Imagine the colors and scents during the winter.
  • The ever interesting and knowledgeable Jim Chakeres will show us how to plan and fill hanging baskets, window boxes and containers for a colorful look throughout the seasons.
  • She’s a very controlled designer with lots of friends and they will be joining Jan Stein as we present Oriental Designs.
  • Joy Strine Sprang has organized an oriental design study evening session for an additional $15. Come apply what you learn during the day and display your exhibit the next day.
  • What better time than spring to present a variety of Plant Identification with Charlene Margetiak and Julie Devilbiss. Your plant i.d. exhibits will become part of the horticulture flower show.
  • Get out your iron and measuring tape as Cathy Nelson shows us the key features of winning Table Designs.

Shop, shop, shop! We will have a vendor room available both days. Whether you are just getting started, restocking your tool kit, looking for plants and containers, or need a little gift, you will have a lot to choose from in our popular vendor room.

In closing, please consider attending Exhibitors’ and Judges’ School this year! You do not have be interested in exhibiting or becoming a judge—just be open to learning, having fun, and making new friends. We can guarantee you will get that!

Exhibitors and Judges School continues to evolve as we add things to help our members experience and succeed in Knowing, Growing, and Showing. A simulated flower show will be an integral part of School #3, May 20 and 21 (Friday and Saturday) at the Crowne Plaza North Columbus.
