The Royal National Rose Society Gardens, also known as The Gardens of The Rose, are the gardens and headquarters of The Royal National Rose Society at Chiswell Green, near St Albans, Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. The Society's stated aim is to create a "living dictionary" of roses in the gardens, which contain 2,500 different rose cultivars among 15,000 rose bushes. The gardens are normally open to the public during the summer. The Royal National Rose Society went into Administration on 15th May 2017. The Gardens are permanently closed. Former employees told the BBC they were not surprised the society had gone into administration after years of it struggling financially.
