HSSJ Fall Flower Show 2016

The Olympics are over (congratulations to team USA) and the weather should start to cool down.  So, it is out to the garden and time to think about the Fall 2016 Flower Show which will take place on Tuesday, October 11 2016.

Helpful Information:

There are Four Sections and 47 Categories for this year’s show.

For Photography, there are six categories including photograph of bird(s) which, yes, can include chickens.

In Potted Plants, there are thirteen categories including unusual container which can be anything from a wok, boot, old handbag, box, or log to a painted flowerpot.

In Specimens, there are 21 categories. The judge’s advice is to keep your specimen as tall as possible, leave leaves on stem, but cut off any bug eaten or burnt leaves.

In Arrangements, there are six categories. With the exception of number six, you may add any embellishments to your arrangement. For an example, if you would like to add a train going around your Holiday Centerpiece, go for it.

Horticultural Society of South Jersey presents “Fungi in the Soil, Mushrooms in the Kitchen”. Join Tyler Case of Mycopolitan as he presents everything mushroom. Fungi play many pivotal roles in soil biology and ecology. Mycelium breaks down wood, channels water and minerals, and even provides transport for plant signaling. These processes occur largely unseen. Only for brief moments can we bear witness to the mycelium's fruit: mushrooms, popping up just long enough to cast spores then giving themselves up to the forest. There are many ways that we can mimic nature to grow mushrooms indoors and out, and the results are captivating, delicious, nutritious, and medicinal. Join us for a discussion and celebration of all things fungal!
