To qualify for the awards a rose must meet the following criteria: excellent for ordinary use in appropriate conditions, available, of good institution, essentially stable in form and colour and reasonably resistant to pests and diseases.

The plant trials and assessments normally take place at an RHS Garden where the plants are judged by expert forums. A rose which has been given the Award of Garden Merit will make a wonderful addition to any garden as a gift, or as a treat for your own enjoyment.

In 1992 the AMG was relaunched as the premier award from the RHS and it was to be reviewed at 10 year intervals. In 2012 it was updated to reflect the need to keep up with the pace of change with many awards now being updated annually.

These roses are aesthetically pleasing, have a good disease resistance and don’t require any specialist growing conditions.
