Virtual Rose Show 2020

See F A Q's bottom of page

For the last 91 years the members of the Thorold Garden Club have been sponsoring an annual juried Rose and Flower show.

 

Of course with COVID-19 that sort of venue is no longer available to us. 

However Mother nature and our Roses are still a great part of our lives and to this end we are opening up our Rose show as a Virtual competition for fun and bragging rights to members of both the Thorold Garden Club and the St. Catharines Horticulture Society...and members of those two city communities.

1. SECTION A

Hybrid TEA Roses

Hybrid tea flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Their flowers are usually borne singly at the end of long stems which makes them popular as cut flowers. Rose: Courtesy of Greg White

2. SECTION B

Floribunda Roses

Floribundas are a cross between polyantha species roses and hybrid teas, combining hardiness, free flowering, and showy, usually fragrant blooms. Sizes of these hardy roses vary from compact and low-growing to a more open habit and heights of 5-6 feet, ideal for tall hedges.

3. SECTION C

Grandiflora Roses

Grandiflora Roses are similar to Hybrid Teas in habit and size. They generally are tall plants that present their blooms in clusters, rather than as one-per-stem. They make excellent garden plants and are very popular as cut flowers.

4. SECTION D

Climbing Roses

The main difference between rambling roses and climbers is that rambling roses usually flower once, whereas climbing roses usually repeat flower throughout summer and autumn, but there are exceptions.

5. SECTION E

Miscellaneous Roses

True Miniature Roses, Shrub Roses, A rose of any type floating in a clear glass container with foliage (detached) . . .
