TOP VASE COMPETITION RULES:
1. The Top Vase class is for a vase of mixed flowering stems containing a total of between five and ten stems, taken from a minimum of two different kinds of plants. Please note that it is two different KINDS of plants; two varieties of the same plant are NOT two kinds.

2. The display will be judged out of a total of 35 points, split into 25 points for the colour, form, condition, quality and freshness of the flowers on display and 10 marks for the overall presentation and effect of the flowers in the vase. The vase will be viewed from all directions. Judging of the flowers should be to normal rules used for other Classes.

3. Stems used in the display must be showing flowers only; no seed heads or berries will be allowed.

4. The vase can be any shape and size and made from any material, but must be in proportion to the display. No marks are awarded for the vase itself.

5. No accessories, such as bows and additional foliage, will be allowed. Foliage which is growing naturally from the flowering stem, and still attached to the stem, is allowed. Packing material, including florist's foam, to keep the stems in place is allowed.
