ROSE TRIALS

Trials

Many rose trials across the world have cancelled their events or rescheduled them.

Glasgow and Belfast have produced results from this year’s panel judging but there have been no international judging days that usually occur.

The new rose trials in Hertfordshire run by Rochfords has managed to continue with socially distanced judging so it is likely that second year results will be available.

Many other worldwide trials have also been affected by Covid restrictions.

Check with your local event organisers for any events you plan to attend in 2021. We will keep you updated as information is shared.
