HORTICULTURE JUDGING

To be an American Rose Society Accredited Horticulture Judge is an earned honor that carries with it certain responsibilities. Judging is a privilege that carries with it the responsibility to conduct oneself with objectivity, fairness, courtesy and honor.

Like everything related to our world of roses, judging them is a pleasurable and richly rewarding experience. Judges commonly travel several hundred miles to judge a local show. To judge roses, as to judge anything else, you need a frame of reference - a set of standards agreed on by all judges - see our Horticulture Judging Guidelines below.
