The Kentucky Daffodil and Bulb Society is inviting daffodil enthusiasts from across Central Kentucky to show off their flowers.
KDABS is having a practice for show staging daffodils from 7-9 p.m., March 28 at the Tates Creek Library branch, 3628 Walden Drive. Participants are invited to enter their flowers in this “low key fun show,” a news release from the society says.
“Learn what the judges are looking for and what makes a good show flower. If you have unidentified flowers and want to know what they are, bring them. If we can’t identify them, we can take pictures and share them with others who might be able to help,” the release states.
The society will then combine an accredited show with a “fun” show April 1-3 at George Rogers Clark High School cafeteria, 2745 Boonesboro Road in Winchester.
The show setup will take place from 2-6 p.m., March 31; entries will be accepted from 2-6 p.m., April 1 and 7-10 a.m. April 2. Judging will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 2 and the show will be open from 1-5 p.m. April 2 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 3.
Exhibitors and judges are coming from Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia.
KDABS guest lecturer Ian Tyler will give a presentation on daffodils in England from 7-9 p.m., April 5 at the Eastside branch of the Lexington public library, 3000 Blake James Drive.
Tyler, from The Daffodil Society of the United Kingdom, is a well-respected authority on daffodils and is a regular attendee and judge at the American Daffodil Society’s annual conventions. He has been growing daffodils for 40 years and has been judging them for 30 years. He is a past general secretary of The Daffodil Society, England’s equivalent of the ADS.
