HRG stall at Hampton Court


Your help is vital for our shows. We always need volunteers to help staff our stand, meet fellow members of the HRG and talk to the public.

If you are interested in getting involved, whether for a few hours or a whole day, please contact info@historicroses.org.

Day visits

We aim to offer visits in different parts of the country. Participating in them offers an  enjoyable way of socialising with other members as well as seeing gardens of special interest to rose-lovers.

On day visits individual members make their own way to the venues but on our longer tours transport between gardens is laid on for the group.


Every year the HRG organises week-long tours for members to visit interesting gardens with roses, both in the UK and abroad.

Our groups generally number no more than 25 - 30 people and new members are particularly welcome. We aim to offer one tour in Britain annually and one abroad if possible. 

Other events and activities

The Historic Roses Group has organised many study days and pruning workshops at several garden venues round the country, and plans to continue these for members keen to learn more about caring for roses.

This section also includes conferences such as the AGM.
