About Roses 2 Go Florists & A Dozen Roses - The Rose Farm in Warnervale / Woongarrah

Tyrade Pvt Ltd was originally a company formed in Zimbabwe by Merle and Tony Mann and was named after their two sons Tyron and Wade, hence Tyrade.

The Mann family owned and operated a highly diverse farming operation in Zimbabwe consisting of growing tobacco, maize, wheat, barley, soya beans, grass seed, beef cattle and FRESH CUT ROSES FOR EXPORT

However, due to the political unrest and the land reform policies of Zimbabwe - the situation became volatile and hostile in Zimbabwe - the Mann family decided to migrate to Australia after being forcefully evicted from their family-owned farm of 20 years.  The entire farm was compulsorarily acquired by the Government of Zimbabwe and the Mann family were not compensated for the land or any improvements at all. 

The Mann family made a decision to consolidate their limited resources and put all their skills, expertise and effort into a highly intensive hydroponic rose growing operation.  With the experience of exporting fresh cut roses to top European markets on a daily basis for many years the Mann family had every confidence in being able to supply high quality fresh cut rose blooms to the local market of Australia.  The Mann family also felt there was a demand for good quality locally grown and produced roses as opposed to the inferior quality imported roses available.  (Please note the imported product may not be inferior at it's place of origin but after long air travel & being subjected to the regulations of the Australian Quarantine whereby all product must be dipped in Round-Up prior to travel to de-vitalize it & on arrival into Australia be subjected to Methyl Bromide to destroy any live organisms or pests - the imported roses have not got a good chance of looking or performing their best!)  Therefore, providing huge scope for freshly grown and locally produced roses.

The appealing climate, the close market proximity of Central Coast, Newcastle and Sydney, the high level of development and future potential development of the Central Coast, and the high standard of the infrastructure of the Central Coast made it the ideal area to establish a high quality rose growing facility.

With the assistance of Tony Axford from the Central Coast Regional Development Office based at Ourimbah Campus, the Mann family managed to secure a long-lease of a greenhouse facility at Active Industry Training's premises on Hakone Road in Warnervale.

Thus, Tony Mann and his two sons Wade and Tyron established TYRADE (PTY) LTD and began operating in January 2003.  The greenhouse, however, had to be converted from growing hydroponic tomatoes using the NFT (Nutrient Flow Technique) to growing HYDROPONIC ROSES using coco-peat as a growing medium.  Various adjustments had to be made to the greenhouse to better suit roses - a new drip irrigation system had to be installed, a new computer controlling the greenhouse ventilation & sun-screen systems had to be installed as well as a system to recycle all water and sterilize it had to be put in place.  Even the benches on which the tomatoes had previously grown upon had to be modified and new boxes brought in to cultivate the roses in.

The first rose speedlings were planted on 17th February, 2003.  The first rose blooms ready for sale arrived two weeks before Mothers Day 2003.  Tyrade Pty Ltd was officially in business.  The markets gradually grew as the production of the roses increased. 

Tyrade Pty Ltd starting trading as "A Dozen Roses" & developed a great brand name unfortunately a competitor already had the domain name so the family decided to change the company name to Roses 2 Go Pty Ltd and all new shops were called Roses 2 Go Florists followed by their area's location i.e. Roses 2 Go Florist Woongarrah; Roses 2 Go Florist East Gosford and Roses 2 Go Florist Killarney Vale.  At our beautiful retail florists on the Central Coast - our farm fresh hydroponic roses are sold directly to the public at  EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY PRICES.  Our three florist shops on the Central Coast offer a FULL FLORIST SEVICE with same day delivery our beautiful roses, bouquets, arrangements, baskets for every ocassion.  The most important point of difference for ROSES 2 GO FLORISTS is that all our ROSES ARE GUARANTEED TO LAST AT LEAST 7 DAYS and all grown on our farm in Warnervale using the latest environmentally-friendly growing techniques!
