Take the first step and enter your best blooms.
First-time exhibitors are especially encouraged to enter!
Give it a go. We'd love to see as many SA Members as possible entering. It's a fun and supportive environment, surrounded by like-minded growers and beautiful blooms. Yes, you might even take home a prize!
