WHO IS ?
Mr Roses is the man you buy the BEST roses from. Born and raised in a flower market, he fell head over heels for roses. He grew to become the master behind one of Australia’s leading online florists, and after a long romance, he moved on. But now, he is back again, with his self-titled brand, Mr Roses.
Why? Because true love has a habit of coming back.
The quintessential flower of enchantment, roses run a gamut of emotion. From the depths of passionate romance to the whimsical excitement of friendship; the fluidity of the rose guarantees it a place in the heart of everyone.
We have searched the globe for the finest equatorial growers. Typically, we find them at least 8,000 feet above sea level, namely Ecuador, Colombia, Kenya and Ethiopia. Here they are exposed to the ideal sunlight and temperature to produce the finest large head roses on the planet, which will be sure to WOW your recipient.
Our florists finish each rose by hand, de-thorning, and carefully plucking its guard petals away to make sure it looks its best from the moment it is unpacked. For its longest life we cut the stem at an angle for extra water absorption and each individual stem even has its own water sachet (with pure New Zealand water - in the instance of orders outside of Sydney and Perth) and flower food is provided, ensuring optimal life span and condition. When your roses arrive the buds will be pre bloom to ensure your recipient enjoys its longevity.
Our Australian-born founder, James Stevens, has lived and breathed roses from the day he was born. As a child, he would visit the vivacious Sydney flower markets with his father, buying stock for the family floristry business.
There, he watched as his father would bring joy and excitement to millions of commuters rushing home to their loved ones - and he knew this was what he wanted to do.
It was in the early 90's that James saw an opportunity in the new world of ecommerce for a business focused on roses. His concept of a brand known for its quality - "the Tiffany of flowers" - led to the creation of Roses Only.
James has subsequently started Roses Only outside of Australia, in the United States, United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong Kong and more recently, Jakarta. After many years not operating in the Australian market, he is back with his new brand offering Australia wide delivery, Mr Roses.
Mr Roses has searched high and low for the world’s best roses, grown at a minimum 7000 ft above sea level in countries such as, Ecuador, Colombia, Kenya and Ethiopia. At this elevation, and near the equator, these are the largest rose heads in the world. When you order a dozen roses from Mr Roses they come in a signature box. They arrive in close to bud form allowing the receiver to watch as they open into the most beautiful blooms.Under James’s guidance, Roses Only has become a household name all around the world. Our customers know that our unequivocal attention to detail and uncompromisingly high standards is what makes us so special.
