Rose Trials

As ever, we are very grateful to our team of judges: they represent as wide a spectrum of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm as possible and we welcome enquiries from those who would like to get involved. Once the scores are received, they are collated and checked by a small panel led by the Chair of Judges, Adrian Pickett, and the winners are announced.

Across our trials we have varieties submitted by breeders and growers from various countries with entries from the UK, Germany, France, Belgium, Holland, Ireland and Denmark.
