The Rose Society UK is delighted to announce that we can now offer Affiliate Membership.
We have had many requests from local garden and horticultural societies; asking if they can affiliate with the new society and whether we will be offering a Bronze medal for affiliates to award to their members.
Affiliate Membership is now open to all societies and flower shows. Our newly designed Bronze Medal will be available in early 2018 and we are excited at the possibilities that this offers.
Affiliate Membership is offered at just £10.
What do Affiliate Members get?
All affiliates will have the opportunity to purchase the Rose Society UK’s Bronze Medal for excellence in rose growing. We want everyone to grow great roses and to be great at growing roses. Our bronze medal is intended to reward this, either as a result of excellence in rose showing or as a reward for excellence in growing roses or services to rose growing. All affiliate members are encouraged to talk to us about how our medal may best be used. The cost of the medal and card will be £20
The Bronze Medal Card
We have accredited judges whose details will be available to all affiliate members.
Within the society we have many experienced speakers who can deliver professional, informational talks about all rose topics; our affiliates will have access to our group.
We are planning a new initiative in 2018; a Consulting Rosarian Programme. The Australian and American Rose Societies both operate a Consulting Rosarian Program and from our experience it is a very well used and worthwhile program. During our busy season of summer shows, where we run Information Bureaux; it is apparent that many gardeners have a multitude of rose-related questions. A Consulting Rosarian program is intended to provide a network of experienced, knowledgeable rose growers to access and respond to as many rose-growing gardeners as possible. Our Consulting Rosarians will hopefully cover the UK and will be available to all members and affiliate members for advice and latest rose information. This is an exciting venture for our new society which we realise may take a while to fully impliment but it is the direction in which we hope to be heading.
