The Historic Roses Group is a friendly international group of rose enthusiasts, run by volunteers and funded entirely by subscriptions from our members throughout the world.

HRG members can:

  • gain tailor-made advice on how to care for their roses
  • exchange ideas and knowledge with fellow rose-lovers
  • join our day visits to specialist gardens with old roses
  • sign up for study sessions and practical workshops
  • help us to exhibit at local and national horticultural shows like the Hampton Court Flower Show
  • travel with our exclusive annual tours to see rose gardens in the UK and abroad. Past HRG tours have included visits to Italy, Germany, France, Belgium and Denmark, as well as throughout Britain.

In addition twice a year all our members receive the Historic Rose Journal. It publishes informative articles on old roses, their history, cultivation and merits, reviews interesting new books, reports on the group’s varied activities and publicises future shows and events.

We may also occasionally send you details of exclusive membership offers and opportunities by email or post.
