Rose growing

Growing roses continues to be popular across the UK and our area is no exception. Our show always has a number of classes for roses which showcase the talents of the local growers.


If you wish to grow roses well, the Bexleyheath and District Rose Society is a superb resource for beginners and experts alike.


The Royal National Rose Society (Under Construction) which was founded in 1876 is the leading society dedicated to roses in the UK.


However,  roses are a popular plant to grow across the world as the World Federation of Rose Societies web site reveals


We are also well-served with rose breeders in the UK some well know examples being Fryers, Mattocks, David Austin Roses or Peter Beales



As well as the breeders listed above the Rose locator on the Roses UK web site is a good way of tracking down a particular rose
