Published 5:08 pm Tuesday, March 5, 2019

The Buckingham-Dillwyn and Ruth Adams Garden Clubs will host the South Central District of Garden Clubs Flower Show at the Robert Russa Moton Museum on Griffin Boulevard in Farmville on Tuesday, March 12.

The National Garden Club (NGC) Standard Flower Show, “A Spring Wedding,” is free and open to the public from noon-2 p.m. It will be housed in the Tar Paper Shack located on the Museum campus. Both horticulture and floral designs will be shown.

Horticulture often depends on the weather. The schedule for horticulture includes bulbs, flowering shrubs and trees, flowering and non-flowering perennials, and flowering and non-flowering container grown plants. Blue ribbon quality entries can be assured with this much variety.

The flower show design classifications include everything from traditional to outside the box. The wedding theme is perfect to showcase the newest NGC floral designs. A more traditional feel might be found in the cascade design. Botanical Arts Designs and Artistic Crafts are new categories in NGC design. Entries will include a collage of wedding memorabilia, crafted wedding cake topper, and treated, fresh plant material that will stretch traditional designers in new directions. These are not your mother’s flower arrangements.

The South Central District of Garden Clubs is a member of Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc., South Atlantic Region and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
