Danish grower wins annual rose trial

Poulsen Roses scoops Glasgow accolade two years in a row

A Danish rose grower has won the City of Glasgow’s annual international rose trials for the second year in a row. The Lord Provost’s Cup for the rose with the highest points was awarded to Fredensborg-based Poulsen Roses for its rosa ‘Summer Gold Castle’. Danish Rose Society (DRS) president Peter Jordt said he was “delighted” that Danish roses are being recognised on an international level. He added: “It makes us very proud.” Wolverhampton-based grower David Austin Roses won the prize for most popular rose selected by members of the public. It also picked up the prize for fragrance for its ‘Jubilee Celebration’ rose. David Austin Roses technical manager Michael Marriott said that Danish growers had “a slight edge” thanks to the weather, because “the climate in Glasgow is similar to Denmark”. The rose trials, which take place every August, are set in one hectare of Glasgow’s Tollcross Park.
