Exhibiting roses is a fun and rewarding hobby. We believe deep inside most every rose grower is an exhibitor waiting for an opportunity to show the world their blooms. Today we hear from a rose master who'll tell us about five exhibition quality roses that you can grow and show. We think that by growing these roses, it'll surely awaken the exhibitor within you. This includes one rose that gets as big as a Volkswagen! Well, at least in Bob's garden... 

Here's a list of the roses Bob chatted with us about today:
  1. Rose de Rescht - Old Garden Rose (OGR)
  2. Joy - Miniature
  3. Julia Child - Floribunda
  4. Butter Cream - Miniflora
  5. Dona Martin - Hybrid Tea
