Staging Plants for Shows
presented by Peter Walkowiak

The main part of this talk will focus on staging your plants. Staging is often likened to framing an expensive painting, the pot is the frame, top dressing and rocks is the matting and the plant the picture. The pot offers many sizes, textures, colors, choosing the right one is important in the context of the overall design. Then the top dressing has many colors and texture. How do you choose?

I will demonstrate with several plants, couple of cacti and a couple succulents to give a variety of type of plants and styles that you may want to try. Time permitting, I will help with the staging of some of your plants.

Just bring in a plant with a pot, (staging rocks) you want staged but are not sure how to proceed. I will help or do the staging for you. I will provide top dressing , if you have a special top dressing bring it.
