ROSES IN REVIEW
ROSES IN REVIEW
This will be the 97th time Roses in Review will be conducted in which rose growers everywhere can review new roses they've grown in their own garden.
Roses included in the survey have generally been on the market one to four years and are available commercially, although some on a limited basis.
Deadline to rate roses is September 26, 2022.
Please read the directions carefully to learn how the system works.
The online survey at www.rose.org will close at 5:00 PM (PST), September 26, 2022. Any paper forms submitted must also be in the hands of your district coordinator by that date. We urge you to use the online system - it's easy and it saves from having to transcribe written forms. Please take the time to report on all the varieties you grow on the Roses in Review survey list.
A broad base of participation is needed to make this project worthwhile. We need your evaluations, whether you grow one of the varieties on the survey list, or dozens of them. We welcome evaluations from you whether you are new rose-grower, a "garden" rose-grower or a seasoned veteran grower, whether you grow roses for your landscape and garden, or if you also grow them to exhibit or arrange. We are happy to get reports from non-ARS members as well, so please forward a copy of this email along to all of your rose-growing friends (and encourage them to try an ARS Trial Membership as well).
Results of the survey will be included in the January/February 2023 issue of American Rose magazine and will determine ratings in the ARS Handbook for Selecting Roses as well. For these results to be meaningful, we need everyone to participate. Please take a few minutes of your time to evaluate your new roses.
