2018 Garden Rose Design Contest Winners Announced!

Updated: Jul 20, 2021

We are so excited to announce the winners of our Garden Rose Design Contest! We'd like to thank all of the participants. We received hundreds of entries and truly enjoyed seeing the creativity of their designs.

Our judges (Alexandra Farms President Joey Azout; David JC Austin of David Austin Roses; Hitomi Gilliam AIFD EMC; and David Coake and Lori McNorton from Florists' Review) had the difficult task of evaluating the entries and choosing the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, and we are grateful for their efforts. The Readers Choice awards were chosen by public vote during the month of July 2018.
