Bleu Rose Flowers Plants and Gifts was founded by Tshego Ratshidi. I founded the business in 2018 by venturing into flowers.
You might be wondering why a flower business? After being dissatisfied in the corporate world, I decided to start a flower business as flowers and plants were my first love, which I had grown to love and appreciate. I decided to convert the space I had on my property into a flower and plant garden as a hobby. Whilst working in corporate, I always found myself eagerly anticipating getting home to my garden or spend my Saturday mornings in the garden thoroughly enjoying the great outdoors.
Throughout history, plants have been known to have healing powers, they’ve helped us deal with anxiety, stress, anger, depression as well as express gratitude.
Another turning point in my life came when I lost my Grandmother, whom I was very fond of and close to. I then decided to live a more fulfilling life by doing one of the things I love the most being nurturing flowers and plants as well as sharing the healing effects of plants and flowers with those that need it most.
I love what I do and find it extremely satisfying, as the saying goes “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life” I am loving the journey! Although exhilarating and scary at times but exciting nonetheless.
And that’s how Bleu Rose Flowers was born. We help our customers express emotions through flowers. These customers include individuals, small business as well as corporate and private events. Emotions expressed include: “Get well soon, “The office is no fun without you”, “Happy birthday”, “Condolences”, “Happy Anniversary”, “congratulations”, “Thank you”, “I love ” to mention a few. We do this by arranging a fine selection of flowers and delivering these in Johannesburg and some parts of Cape Town.
Over the years, we have since grown our offering to include plants and gifting. These include indoor plants, fruit baskets as well as snack boxes. We also provide gifting services for special day gifting such as women’s day gifts as well as year-end gifting for small business and corporates who would like to show appreciation to their clients and staff!
