About Rodgers the Florists

Designer Flowers by Rodgers a truly family business, were established way back in 1911 in South Manchester, England. The business developed from market gardeners, wholesalers of flowers and plants, into now a multiple full service retail florists with a number of outlets around Manchester

With their experience and expertise, they can now source flowers DIRECT from all over the world, for example: Orchids from New Zealand & Thailand: carnations and roses from South America; Foliages from Florida and many varieties from Holland and Africa. Thus by importing direct from around the world Rodgers has an advantage over many other florists because their flowers arrive days fresher than going through the usual wholesale supply chain.

Over the years, Designer Flowers by Rodgers has achieved the ability to provide floral designs truly for any occasion. From the small bunch of flowers for the home, a bouquet for an anniversary to designing and setting up massive displays for such events as the Commonwealth Games in Manchester 2002 and other large events like society wedding and balls. With a staff of over 15 including some of the Nations top designers nothing is too small or too big for them to tackle.
