The International Rose Trials take place each year within Tollcross Park. New rose varieties are planted each year and once established, the roses are regularly inspected by a panel of experts. Over two summers the roses are assessed for their health, beauty of flower, freedom of bloom, and general effect.
The International Rose Trials will take place between 23-24 August 2018.
Awards are made to the breeders of the most successful varieties as follows:
Members of the public also have the opportunity to participate in assessing the roses and an award 'The People's Choice' is made to the breeder of the rose variety receiving most votes in the public judging competition.
The City of Glasgow International Rose Garden in Tollcross Park was awarded an Award of Garden Excellence in 2009 by The World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS). There are only 35 gardens worldwide with this prestigious award.
