In person meetings, including Flower Show competitions, are suspended due to COVID-19. Gardening Kingston is hosting Zoom presentations monthly and details will be announced as they are confirmed. Check the web site or The Columbine newsletter for details.
Throughout the gardening season, Garden Kingston members and the community are invited to exhibit horticultural specimens in the various classes, featuring flowers and vegetables, from their own gardens for judging. There are also Design classes for anyone interested in trying their hand at floral artistry. Suggestions for effective exhibiting can be found in the Ontario Judging and Exhibiting Standards booklet (OJES).
The following monthly schedules for both Horticultural and Design Divisions with timely themes for 2020 are listed below. Each month, points are awarded for every entry and tabulated towards our Society Awards presented at our Annual General Meeting. Good luck to everyone.
See instructions in the linked documents (called schedules) for each month.
