According to Susan Head with the Albuquerque Garden Center, this show is a great opportunity for amateur gardeners. There are over 100 categories for people to enter everything from favorite flower or herb they grow to bulbs, cacti and succulents, container-gardeners, collections, floral arrangements, and even table settings that include a floral arrangement.

Entries for the show will be accepted from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Friday, June 14. Judging occurs right after that window closes and then the show opens to the public from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and again from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 15. There will also be an awards ceremony at 3:30 on Saturday. The flower show will be held at the Albuqueruqe Garden Center, located at 10120 Lomas Blvd.

The Council of Albuquerque Garden Clubs, Inc. was formed in 1950 with the goal of educating the public on horticultural matters. The council currently includes 16 gardening clubs in the Albuquerque Area, coordinating the activities of those clubs and overseeing the Albuquerque Garden Center.
