Blossoming good time

This year, the club will be using movie titles to create the framework for the show. 

The show will feature more than 150 horticulture exhibits grown by club members and community gardeners. Horticulture sections will include an array of planters and hanging baskets. Dish gardens and non-flowering foliage planters are new horticulture sections this year. 

Gardeners will compete for the best roses, flowering shrubs, bulbs, rhizomes and tubers, as well as the most beautiful annuals and perennials in bloom during the show.  Anyone can enter a horticulture exhibit between 2-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 10. 

Visitors can expect to see some iconic films interpreted in 40 floral designs, featuring both fresh and dried flowers. 

Area youth will be represented as well, by creating 30 floral arrangements for judging under the direction of club members with the help of Spring Lake District Library staff. 

In addition, there will be four educational documentaries, including exhibits featuring non-native and invasive plants, and beneficial insects for your garden.

The Tri-Cities Garden Club is a member of both the National Garden Club and the Michigan Garden Club. All exhibits will be judged by nationally accredited flower show judges.

Fourteen National Garden Club Top Exhibitor Awards will be offered, with 10 of them designated for horticulture exhibits.

The Flower Show is free and open to the public from 3-8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11; 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, July 12; and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 13.
