The Czech ROSA CLUB was founded in 1968 in Prague as a specialized group of the Czech Union of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners (CUALG). It now has approximately 300 members across the country.
Its bulletin, Zpravodaj, is published twice a year. An Annual Meeting is held in late winter and a Summer Meeting is also held.
The International Contest of New Roses at Hradec Králové is organized by the Czech Rosa Club and financed by the municipal authorities. For more information contact Dr. Stanislav Konštacký at email@example.com OR www.rosetrial.cz
