A new home for our extra-special blooms
At M&S, we’re so proud of our exceptional range of premium quality roses that we’ve dedicated an entire online boutique to them. Welcome to The Rose Shop.
Join us as we travel to Amsterdam to meet the passionate people behind our Avalanche roses and get a behind-the-scenes look at how they cultivate and nurture these most perfect of blooms.
Hand-picked Avalanche roses have been featured in haute couture runway shows and celebrity birthday parties alike. We decided to show off our three varieties – pearl, sweet and classic white – by building a statement wall in our Dutch glasshouse.
Our flower experts and product developers travel across the globe to source beautiful blooms straight from the suppliers, as well as working closely with growers and rose breeders to create brand new varieties and unique colour variants.
As well as Amsterdam, we work with suppliers from Kenya, where we get our vibrant, bright range of Fair Trade roses, and Colombia, where high altitude plots of land yield slow-growing, long-stemmed and large-head roses in exciting and unusual shades.
See our full range and discover the lengths we go to for these extra-special flowers.
"After visiting our growers in Amsterdam and seeing these lush, opalescent roses, I realised quite how special they are."
"I love the simplicity of a pure white rose and these plump Avalanche roses with their hint of warm cream and extra large, frilly heads are the perfect present – I sent some to my friend after her wedding last Winter, because they reminded me of the lacy, frothy layers of her ivory silk dress."
Roses have a language all their own and every colour has a different meaning and significance. We've selected our favourite shades to ensure you really do say it with flowers.
Our range has roses to suit every budget, from perfectly formed Columbian roses at just £25 to bouquets with real wow factor like our specialist Avalanche arrangements that make truly special gifts.
“I received these today and they really are beautiful, lovely structured roses, all still in quite tight stage of blooming, long stems, and beautiful colour combination.”
From soft pastels to neon brights, our range of sumptuous roses has something for everyone
