Re: Re: SHOW: Advance Prep

Now that is interesting...we had seedlings at one of our shows that were
groomed except that the spent floewers were left on. The exhibitor was told this
not proper, that they should be exactly as they were in the garden. Could this be
preference of the individual judge? I also was at a show where one judge commented
that the grooming was "horrendous" ......when it was at a standard that the other
judges (and myself)
found totally acceptable. There were accredited judges entered in the show as
well, probably
responsible for 40-60% of the stalks shown. Go figure.
