1. The Top Vase class is for a vase of mixed flowering stems containing a total of between five and ten stems, taken from minimum of two different KINDS of plant. Please not that two varieties of the same plant are NOT two kinds.

2. To be judged out of total of 35 points - 25 for colour, form, condition, quality and freshness of flowers; 10 for overall presentation and effect. Vase to be viewed from all directions. Judging of flowers will be to the normal rules used for other classes.

3. Stems used in the display must be showing flowers only; no see heads or berries will be allowed. The vase can be any shape, size and material, but must be in proportion to the display. No marks are awarded for the vase itself.

4. No accessories such as bows and additional foliage will be allowed. Foliage which is growing naturally from the flowering stem and still attached to that stem is allowed. Packing material, including florist’s foam, to keep stems in place is allowed.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE POINTS AWARDED IN THE TOP VASE CLASS DO NOT COUNT TOWARDS TROPHIES LISTED UNDER SPECIAL AWARDS.
