Welcome to Pauline and Ray Martin's web home

  I'm afraid that this website is VERY
out of date
We have been so busy since May 2017
building a new rose society since the demise of the former RNRS
I will update this site when time permits but until then
please enjoy the content that remains on the site and
please visit www.therosesociety.org.uk
which is the website of the new society

A little about us;
we've been growing roses since 1974 in Felixstowe, Suffolk.
We grow our approximately 500 roses at home, in our garden and also on our allotment. We now have 'his and her' Rhino greenhouses that we hope will house another 40 or so roses in pots for the RNRS Spring Show in Malvern.  
We are both R.N.R.S. Judges and this year finished our 'apprenticeships' to become fully qualified American Rose Society Judges too. We give illustrated PowerPoint rose talks about rose shows, roses, rose culivation and stories about our rose trips to Societies and garden clubs in the East Anglian region or further afield by arrangement - email us on ray@raytherose.com  for details
