The simplest section of the Flower Show might also be the most compelling. Each year the Horticourt welcomes expert and novice gardeners who enter plants for judging by the nation’s most distinguished horticulturists. These entries are presented in a straight-forward, no frills manner, allowing the inherent beauty of the plants to take center stage.
Horticourt highlights include bulbs, succulents, hanging baskets, terrariums, and orchids. As you admire the skill and dedication that went in to making these plants near-perfect, see if you agree with the judges’ evaluations.
New in 2013, the Horticourt—now renamed The PHS Hamilton Horticourt—had a refined look and better lighting. PHS thanks perennial Flower Show exhibitor Mrs. Samuel M. V. Hamilton for her generous support.
