The 3rd Garden Rose Design Contest has been held by Alexandra Farms and the winners have been selected! Entries were received between May 1st and June 28th.
Garden Rose Design Contest
This year the GRDC was held with only one category: Beautiful designs with Garden Roses! Bridal Bouquets, Vase arrangements, large installations were all accepted. "This year we had over 100 entries and the quality of entries was superb", Says José Azout, owner of our Colombian boutique farm.
An Online and United Contest
This year, rather than having a panel of judges as we’ve done in previous years, the winners were selected by a public online vote. Also new to the 2020 contest, worldwide entries were all rated together. In previous years we had several different contests for different places around the world. This year's voting system resulted in over 2,800 online votes.
