Results of the SAF Competition
There were 44 growers in the Competition with over 225 entries, more S.A. growers than I have ever seen. Judging was harder this year than past years, very few Blue Ribbons were given and over ¾ of the entries did not ribbon at all.
The KB Ravenna - Hot Pink Oriental Lily won BEST LILY IN THE LILY CLASS and we had a lot of competition. This was our only blue ribbon.
I felt if I could have opened the Ice Dancer - White Oriental Lily, it would have taken the best of class because of its large blooms and strong stems---but we still took a second.
Our Orientals proved to be world class and we should be very proud of the Farm.
The greenhouse did a superior job growing, selecting, and shipping: out of 400 stems, we only lost 2. A very special thank you to Greenleaf Phoenix, Kathy and her crew for setting and transporting the flowers.
