At the beginning of March, the team of gardeners from the environmental department of the city of Nyon took care of the pruning of the 81 roses of the 4th edition with competence and enthusiasm. After 5 judgments in 2022, these varieties will be judged twice again by the permanent jury and finally by the international jury on June 17.
The roses for the 5th edition were planted by the same team in excellent condition on March 8. Heavy rain throughout the day directly watered the young plantations in the most natural way possible. The 62 varieties entrusted to us by 23 professional breeders from 11 countries (Germany, Belgium, China, Denmark, France, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, Switzerland, USA) will be evaluated seven times by the permanent jury from May 2023 until June 2024, and until June 2025 for landscape roses, ground cover, and climbing. The reduction in the number of varieties is due to the record number of entries for the 2022 edition. The Trial is now limited to four varieties per breeder for the 2023 and 2024 editions, which we anticipate will return to an average rate of a hundred varieties per edition.
With the goal of introducing the world of roses to the future generation of gardeners, all the management of vocational schools in French-speaking Switzerland once again enthusiastically responded to the invitation of a jury of apprentices. For the second time, 15 young people will choose their favorite variety on June 14 while discovering the floriferousness, the fragrance, and the incredible resistance of certain varieties entrusted by breeders. This prize will be awarded on the day of the international jury by one of the young gardeners, accompanied by the godmother behind the idea of this new jury,
Mrs. Gisèle Tschanz.
