Rose of the Year Awards

Rose of the Year Awards

Introduced in 1982, the Rose of the Year Awards are designed to discover by trials the best rose(s) in any given year.

Rose breeders are invited to enter what they consider to be their new up and coming varieties each year.  Trials are then conducted throughout the UK in different regions, soil conditions and climates.  These trials last two years and are judged by both amateurs and professionals with the most worthy variety being named Rose of the Year.

In order to ensure there are enough roses available on the market to fulfill demand following the announcement of the Rose of the Year, nominations are put forward six years in advance so stock can be bulked-up.

Below you can see a comprehensive list of the Rose of the Year winners since its 1982 inception.  Ocassionally there may be more than one winner; the overall Rose of the Year and the Novelty Rose of the Year.
