Testimonials

“A dozen Roses is the preferred florist of Bluetongue Stadium.  “Most of our orders are via the phone and you never really know what is going to be delivered to the client at the other end.  With A Dozen Roses this is not an issue, as they grow, package and deliver their own product you don’t pay for the middle man and receive more for your money.”  

Monique Marks Managing Director – Bluetongue Stadium, Central Coast

“Thanks A Dozen Roses for the beautiful flowers you continually supply.  At last I have found someone I can trust to supply that special thank you or unexpected surprise.  The reaction from my clients (and my wife) is always extraordinary, as are your roses.  It is wonderful to know that I can place an order over the phone, get great advice, have the flowers delivered without fuss and get unrivalled value for money.”

”I have known the Mann family for the last 8 years. Tony, Merle, Wade and Nicky, go out of their way to produce the best Australian grown roses with an emphasis on quality, environmental consideration & the latest pest management practises with minimum chemical used. As a result their roses are of the highest quality & I am yet to see a similar product on the market which matches theirs.

A Dozen Roses is a tourism attraction, when you are on site, experiencing the passion and very friendly customer interaction it is a must to pick up a Dozen Roses. You can be assured quality of hygiene and the growing process that have been put in place ensuring best quality and life expectancy of the roses.

It is with an absolute pleasure that I can recommend to not just buy a Dozen Roses, but also visit them on one of their well informed tours on the nursery where you can experience the atmosphere of the business and the people, you will see first hand the passion and realise the love people have for roses.”

“A Dozen Roses has supplied the Gorokan Chiropractic Centre with perfect blooms for nearly 5 years.  The deep and lively colours are breathtaking and arrangements last up to two weeks.  We also enjoy the flowers at home and we pre-order specific combinations for gifts and special occasions.   We would not go anywhere else for roses.” 

Claire Parker, Dip App Sci (Acu), Gorokan Chiropractic Centre

“The roses are stunning and they stay stunning for the longest time. It is no wonder that “A Dozen Roses” won The Best Florist award on the Central Coast because not only are their roses the best, their customer service is second to none. Their delivery presentation is simply gorgeous, whether I choose a beautiful basket or their “Roses-2-Go-Pak “, my clients are always impressed.
Thank you “A Dozen Roses” and Congratulations!!!”

“I have known Nicky, Wade and The Mann family for the past 4 years.

Over the past three years, we have purchased many bunches of Roses for our clients. Together with the team at “A Dozen Roses”  we have even invented our own special mix of different coloured roses.  In my opinion, it’s the great staff, the personal touch and great product too that makes A Dozen Roses the success it is today.

We support A Dozen Roses and we do this for a number reasons.

• Like us, A dozen Roses is a local family owned business, who support local charities and community groups and support as many local business as they can.
• They employ local people.
• They have an outstanding product.  Grown on site, you know when you purchase “A Dozen Roses” they are fresh and haven’t been sitting in the markets for a unknown period.
• They provide outstanding service. The staff at “A Dozen Roses” continually go above and beyond the call of duty to help their customers. They go the extra mile and in return the customers return many, many times.
• On a personal level “A Dozen Roses” have made my anniversaries, birthdays and special occasions something really special with magnificent roses and an outstanding delivery service
•  The quality of their service and product is testament in “A Dozen Roses” having a very large and extremely loyal customer base

I would recommend anyone thinking of using A dozen Roses to call in and see for yourself, meet the team and inspect the quality of their product, chances are there will be a customer there who has bought roses before and like myself would be more than happy to recommend “A Dozen Roses”.

I am proud to highly recommend A dozen Roses, both staff and their outstanding roses to anyone thinking of using them, please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to verify any details that I have provided.”

“Thank-you so much for honouring the Gift Certificate that I bid on at the auction for the lunch at Lizottes “Rainbow Lunch” Petrea King Quest for Life Foundation.  As mentioned on the phone the gift was sent to a very special lady Val who has undergone chemotherapy in order for her to have a lung op.  We only just found out and I had been saving the gift certificate for her hoping that the “chemo” had done its work so she can now go ahead and have the operation.  Val was ‘blown away’ by the gift and that the roses were in the colour of the rainbow.  Thank-you so much for your kindness & support. Sincerely.”  

Jenny Hargraves & Jen Watson.

Adrienne & Stephen Gowley, Northlakes Church

“I highly recommend A Dozen Roses as I know that the quality of the roses is nothing short of perfection, and they last for weeks!

The word is quickly spreading of the value for money you get at A Dozen Roses.
In these times of financial stress on many, it is a nice to know that you can go and pick up a bunch of roses and it’s not going to ‘break the bank’.  The prices are extremely reasonable and affordable.

To walk into a room and see a vase filled with a bunch of roses brings a smile and that ‘warm fuzzy feeling’ we all need every now and again.

I will never forget my 40th birthday when my beautiful friends surprised me with 40 assorted roses from A Dozen Roses.  They were spectacular and made me feel very special (and helped ease the pain!!).

Now A Dozen Roses deliver interstate, everyone can share what we’ve known for ages – A Dozen Roses are the best, why else would they have won the BEST FLORIST ON THE CENTRAL COAST. “  

Gabrielle Durham, Librarian, MacKillop Catholic School, Warnervale

“On behalf of Ronald McDonald House Board of Management and Volunteers, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for your generous donation of beautiful roses for our staff members at Ronald McDonald House in the Hunter.  They were absolutely surprised and delighted to receive such a lovely gift.  It was wonderful to be able to acknowledge all the volunteer hours that the staff chooses to do in making our Ronald McDonald House a “Home away from Home” for the families of children receiving treatment at John Hunter Hospital.  Thank-you for your support!”  

Carol McGahen & Marian Currie, Volunteers, Ronald McDonald House in the Hunter
