Garden Photo Exhibition

The public June Rose and Flower Show at the Frontenac Mall on June 17, 2017 will once again feature a photographic display of member photos. In addition to providing lush and colourful images for folks to admire as they wander by the show, we’d like to do a little bit of public education at the same time. In that light, we’ve selected photo categories that demonstrate plants that can grow and thrive in local gardens, as well as plants that shouldn’t be allowed! For the exhibit, we are planning the following categories:

1. Bulbs: these may be Spring bulbs in the garden (or at any time of year), or these may be indoor or forced bulbs so you don’t need to wait for the snow to melt before taking a few pictures.

2. Pollinator-Friendly Plants: highlighting plants native to our area, and hopefully a few folks will seek them out at local nurseries for their own gardens; labeling the photo with the plant name would be helpful.

3. Garden Thugs: weeds and invasive plants—try to make even a weed look attractive.


1. This exhibition is open to the public.

2. Entries will not be judged but all visitors will be invited to vote for the People's Choice.

3. Prints must be either 5x7" or 8x10"; mounted on an 8.5x11" paper with a title on the front and exhibitor name and phone number on the back. Prints will be "hung on the line" in plastic sleeves.

4. Photographs must have been taken by the exhibitor.

5. Reasonable security will be applied; however, the Kingston Horticultural Society assumes no responsibility for loss or damage.

6. Prints may be picked up at the end of the show at 4:00pm.
