The Royal National Rose Society is the world's oldest specialist plant
society. It maintains the world famous Gardens of the Rose at its St.
Albans, UK home, including the RNRS International Trial Ground.
The newly designed and replanted Gardens of the Rose opened in June 2007 to considerable acclaim. They will, of course, remain a work in progress for some time to come. To date there are approximately 12,000 plants in the garden.
The Society publishes a journal for members - The Rose - and handbooks on growing and selecting roses. It is also associated with several National Rose Shows each year.
Members may call on a free advisory service on all rose problems. Members of the Society particularly interested in heritage roses may join its Historic Roses Group.
The Royal National Rose Society is delighted to accept the much acclaimed WFRS Garden of Excellence Award in 2013 for the Gardens of the Rose.
