Fallbrook's 79th Flower Show scheduled for April 25

FALLBROOK – Final plans are underway for Fallbrook Garden Club’s 79th Flower Show, ‘Fallbrook In Bloom,’ to be held April 25, at the Elder House, 127 West Elder, Fallbrook.

The show will be open for public viewing on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. This is the Fallbrook Garden Club’s annual gift to the community.

Horticulture entries are open to everyone. Exhibitors need not be members of a garden club to enter. Any cut specimen or container plant is eligible for entry as long as it is fresh (no dried materials), clean, pest free and grown by the exhibitor. Due to quarantines in San Diego County, no fruits or vegetables will be exhibited this year.

Horticulture entries will be accepted Saturday, April 24, from 9 a.m. until noon. On Sunday, in addition to the Flower Show, there will be a sale of plants, crafts and garden art as well as an opportunity drawing to include plants and garden-related items. Drawings will be held hourly and presentation of major awards will take place at 3 p.m. Founded in 1931, the Fallbrook Garden Club is one of the oldest and largest clubs in California.

A general meeting is held on the last Tuesday of each month at 12:30 p.m. at the Fallbrook Community Center, 341 Heald Lane. Speakers cover a wide variety of topics including horticulture, floral and landscape design, wildlife and environmental issues. In addition, there are study groups, workshops, tours and special events throughout the year. Guests are welcome at all meetings and membership is open to anyone interested in gardening. The club is a member of National Garden Clubs, Inc., Pacific Region and a charter member of California Garden Clubs, Inc., Palomar District.
