I was not referring to the arrangements - but to the horticulture classes.  
Now if you came to our Horticulture School you would know how to grow and 
exhibit prime specimens of horticulture.  A Standard Flower Show, by 
definition, must have more Horticulture Classes than Design Classes.  In my 
opinion, that's the interesting part of the show - seeing what people grow; 
learning about new varieties; comparing my specimens with others.  But, as 
you said, something for everyone, and I know flower shows are not for 
everyone.  Auralie
