The article offers new exhibitors advice on how to cultivate roses which win awards in exhibition events. An exhibitor can only compete with himself by doing the best possible to grow his exhibition roses. He cannot do anything to grow better roses than the competition. Order only newly introduced roses which have earned a position among the top 25 exhibition roses. It is enough to order just one plant for the purpose of trying it out in the garden. The optimum level of fertilization will result in optimum sized blooms.
