June 4 RIFGC Horticulture Show At Roger WIlliam Park Casino-

 

ENTERIES BY Linda Howard and  Linda Kirkpatrick

___________________________________________________

 

While judging is somewhat subjective, Point Scoring for Horticulture is adhered to, minimizing the subjectiveness.  There were seven Sections with a total of 28 Classes.  Based on these criteria, the following awards are given:

 

Major Awards:

Division:               95 or better

Section:                95 or better

Class Awards:

Blue:                      90  or better (only one awarded)

Red                        85 or better (only one awarded)

Yellow                   80 or better (only one awarded)

White                    75 or better (multiple)

 

If a 90+ is indicated on a Red, Yellow, or White entry, it indicates that the entry qualified for a Blue, but another entry scored somewhat higher.  Based on this, Portsmouth Garden Club entered and was recognized and awarded the following:
