Welcome to Roses UK

Roses UK - Promoting British Rose Breeders & Growers

Roses UK is a joint marketing venture between BARB (British Association Of Rose Breeders) and the British Rose Group of the HTA (previously known as the British Rose Growers Association) aimed at maintaining and increasing the profile of the nation's favourite flower, the rose, through promotional activities.

Amongst its major activities is included responsibility for the organisation of the annual rose festival held at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

Roses UK also manages the Rose of the Year trials - a competition that has been running since 1982 and one that is designed to select, through nationwide trials, the best of new rose introductions, entered by professional rose breeders, for a given year.

The Gold Standard Rose Trial, independently managed by NIAB (National Institute of Agricultural Botany in Cambridge) on behalf of the British Association of Rose Breeders (BARB) is also promoted by Roses UK.

Roses UK is neither a retailer nor wholesaler of roses.
