Bench Shows are an EHS tradition dating back to the early 1900s. The Edmonton Horticultural Society’s most recent Bench Shows, presented in partnership with Fort Edmonton Park in 2009, 2010 and 2011, were an exciting way to celebrate the end of the growing season and your gardening successes.
In August of 2013 we will present a new twist on the Bench Show and we are calling it Share What You Grow.
Just a chance to bring in your flowers and produce to show the wide range of plants that can be grown in Edmonton, to exchange information with fellow gardeners and to share with Meals on Wheels. The categories are as follows:
Bring your flowers and produce clean and ready to display with the named variety so they can be labelled. There will be no official judging though we may have a few people’s choice awards in fun categories. The produce will be donated to Meals on Wheels and the flowers to a senior’s lodge.
