Competitive Classes Descriptions
You are invited to join us for the 2019 Artistic Workshop Series. Artistic Workshops are informal, free, and open to Flower Show exhibitors as well as arrangers who want to learn about entering the Show. Lectures and demonstrations are given, and exhibitors are encouraged to try ideas and consult with their advisors. Samples of the staging will be available. This is a good opportunity to test your backgrounds and lighting ideas.
The 2019 Staging Instructions are available now. Click here to view the Staging Packet.

Are you interested in forcing and entering bulbs in the 2019 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show? Here’s a list of the bulb classes—“named” as well as general—for 2019. The Exhibitor’s Guide (see above) will have additional information about entering.
Challenge plants are a great introduction to entering the Flower Show. All exhibitors start with the same plants and grow them for competition. Only plants purchased from PHS are eligible to be entered. Click here for more information about the 2019 Challenge Plants.
