RHS ACCREDITED JUDGES’ INFORMATION PAGE

In an effort to make all of the accredited RHS Specimen and Floral Art Judges known to the many accredited and non-accredited horticultural and floral art Societies and Associations that RHS judges officiate at during the year, it has been decided to list all currently accredited RHS Specimen and Floral Art Judges here on this page.

It is hoped that this
official listing will ensure that only fully accredited specimen and floral art RHS judges are afforded the opportunity to share their skills and officially judge in the Society's name at the many and varied events around New South Wales. All currently accredited RHS judges have received a certificate of accreditation in 2012.  

If your Society or Association has been using the services of a person who has purported to be a fully accredited RHS Judge - and their name does not appear below - we would like to hear from you about this.

It is hoped that the provision of this service via the internet will ensure that all accredited judges are given an equal opportunity to share their skills. The information provided on this listing is in line with the Privacy Act and only information authorised by each accredited judge will be listed.

We hope that this service will be of benefit to all.
