New Zealand Rose of the Year


New Zealand Rose of the Year

Please find the following details re The New Zealand Rose of the Year held in Hamilton on Saturday 16th November. This is a prestigious international event and is held annually in the beautiful Rogers Rose Garden at the Hamilton Gardens.

Judges are invited from all walks of life, to judges the roses as they are on the day, and when this job has been completed the guests have lunch.
