INTRODUCING MY SEPTEMBER SUPPLIER OF THE MONTH
Updated: Sep 11, 2019
THE ROSE AND RADISH
If you have ever driven the Summertown to Piccadilly road then you are sure to have seen the very cute cart selling gorgeous flowers. What you might not realise is that behind this cart is a small business changing the floral game in Adelaide. Let me introduce you to The Rose and Radish.
Rosie and Oscar are the husband and wife duo behind this Adelaide Hills business. They share a passion for organic farming and gardening and love seeing people enjoy the medicine and beauty that homegrown flowers and produce can bring.
What started as a hobby whilst Rosie was on maternity leave has grown into a successful full-time business. Initially they were selling arrangements from their cart and at the local café, The Piccadilly Kitchen, they added restaurants and wineries to the mix and now service weddings all over Adelaide. What I love about this business is that they are eco friendly and focus on the big picture. They grow everything organically in their wild garden by nourishing the earth, feeding the bees and bringing life to the soil.
Before each wedding they head out to the garden, gather blooms in the colours and textures requested and go to work creating floral magic. Their flowers are wild, seasonal and often rare. When you book your wedding with The Rose and Radish you aren’t just talking to the florist arranging them, you are talking to the people that grow them.
Rosie and Oscar are so passionate about what they do and it shows in their work. Couples love them; they love that they’re supporting local, supporting organic and most importantly receiving a product that is so fresh and captures the mood, colour and style of their special day.
When I asked Rosie what the future held for The Rose and Radish she said ‘We are planning to open our flower farm for visitors this spring/summer/autumn and we are so excited! We are looking forward to welcoming hen's parties for workshops, gathering flowers and creating flower crowns and handtied posies, as well as other workshops and offerings still in the planning process. We are dreaming of having an even more abundant flower patch the following season too, as we source even more beautiful, lush flower varieties from amazing growers around Australia.’
If you are planning your wedding, I encourage you to have a look at their website. Their prices are competitive, their arrangements are gorgeous and you can rest assured you are doing something good for the planet when you book The Rose and Radish.
