North Lincoln Horticultural Society Show Rules
North Lincoln Horticultural Society is an affiliated society of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).The following rules have been adapted from those that apply to all RHS competitions.
Acceptance of entries. The show committee reserves the right to refuse any entry and in the event of such a refusal, is not to be required to give any reason for or explanation.
Eligibility of exhibitors. On all questions regarding the eligibility of an exhibitor the decision of the show committee shall be final.
Exibits must be the property of the exhibitor. All exhibits must be the property of the exhibitor and must have been grown from seed by the exhibitor or been in his or her possession or cared for by him or her for at least two months prior to the date of the show.This ruling does not apply to floral arrangement classes where exhibitors are allowed to use plant material that has not been grown by themselves.
Number of entries allowed Only one person per household may exhibit in any class with produce from the same garden and / allotment unless the exhibit is entered in joint names.
Constitution of an exhibit. Each exhibitor is rsponsible for the compliance with the rules governing each class entered.If an error is noticed at any time it may be corrected by the stewards but they are under no obligation to do so.
labelling exhibits. Every exhibit should be correctly and clearly labelled with the correct name of the cultivar written in block capitals.Errors in naming may not disqualify, except where the judges consider that an exhibit is showing one cultivar under two or more names.If the cultivar name is unknown the label should read ‘NAME UNKNOWN’. When an unnamed seedling is shown it should be labelled ‘SEEDLING’.Correct and clear labelling may be viewed as an advantage in close competition.
Constitution of fruit and vegetable dishes. Each dish must consist of one cultivar (variety) only.The numbers of specimens constituting dishes in the collection of fruit or vegitable must be those specified in the single dish classes.
Layout of exhibits, The show committee’s officers may direct the placing of all exhibits.
One prize in a class. No exhibitor may be awarded more than one prize in any one class unless permitted by the schedule.
Prizes may be withheld. Prizes need not be awarded to an exhibit considered to be below standard.
Exhibits not according to schedule. Any exhibit that does not conform to the wording of the schedule should be disqualified and the judge must write on the entry card ‘Not according to schedule’ (NAS) in addition to a note as to why it is marked as NAS. A vase/dish from a disqualified collection is not eligible for the best vase/dish award.
Decisions. The decisions of the judges as to the relative merits of the exhibits shall be final.Any other points in dispute will be decided by the show committee and/or its appointed referees, particularly in cases of disputed nomenclature, when specimens may be withdrawn for further inspection.
Protest. Any protest must be made in writing and delivered to the show organiser by the time stated on the schedule.
Alteration of exhibits. After judging has taken place no exhibit or part of an exhibit may be altered or removed until the end of the show,except by the special permission of the organiser.
liability for loss. All exhibits, personal property etc., will be at the risk of the exhibitors and the show committee will not be liable for compensation for loss or damage.Exhibitors will be wholly responsible for all claims made by their own employees under the common law or under any statute, for compensation arising out of or in the course of such employment for injury or otherwise.The show committee has no responsibility to any but its own employees.
Right to inspect gardens or allotments of exhibitors. In order to be satisfied that the conditions governing competitive exhibits are fulfilled, the show committee reserves the right for its official representative to visit by appointment, before or after any show, garden or allotments from which plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables have been entered for competition. If it is decided to exercise that right for one or more exhibitors, it does not mean that the gardens or allotments of any other exhibitors need be visited.
