“Panel of Experts”,
Thursday, January 19, 2017, 7 p.m.

     Our panel of experts in the judging area will talk about things to help you prepare your plants to show, whether it is our show table at a meeting or a judged show. Valerie Lowe, an AOS Judge, and Sarah Hurdel and David Smith who are in the AOS Judging Program will cover such topics as:
  • What do judges look for including both the plant and blooms
  • When and how to stake a plan
  • Grooming a plant to show
     Tom McBride who also is an AOS Judge will also contribute in the discussions.
     This will be a very informative program that you will not want to miss.
