It’s that time of year again and we need your help to evaluate new roses!
The 2013 Roses in Review Survey (RIR) marks the 88th time members of the American Rose Society evaluate new rose introductions. 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 a 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. We are happy to get reports from non-ARS members as well, so pass the news along to all 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 2014 issue of American Rose and will determine ratings in the ARS Handbook for Selecting Roses as well. For these results to be meaningful, we need everyone to participate. So please, take a few minutes of your time to evaluate your new roses.
