Can you tell us about Robertson’s Farmgate?
The Farmgate story began 30 or so years ago when Helen planted our first 400 rose bushes into the ground. Little did we know that she would be laying the foundation for Robertson’s Farmgate. In the past 10 years, Farmgate has been joined by daughters Kylie and Katie and has evolved today to be a thriving flower business with more than 5000 rose bushes.
The shed is now a hub for beautiful homewares, fresh blooms and the creation of sensational floral arrangements.
What can a bride to be expect when coming into Robertson’s Farmgate?
Romance, elegance and beauty meets rustic at the Farmgate. We are driven by a love of flowers, which are harvested daily from the paddock, with a focus on creativity and an eye for detail to create beautiful floral artworks which can be built to any scale. Our talented team of florists enjoy working collaboratively to create a vision for all special occasions, celebrations, events and weddings.
Can you tell us about the floral options you can create on site?
At the Farmgate we create beautiful handmade, rustic floral arrangements, gorgeous hampers, boxes of blooms, and design for events with exquisite flower installations and centrepieces. We also love our flower design workshops and crown making days for hen’s and special occasions.
What does the team love most about working with couples?
We delight in the privilege to be part of a couple’s wedding, building their vision with flowers to make the day a most memorable celebration. A walk through the abundant rose garden will inspire and build your wedding vision and event. Floral bouquets and wands, rose petals and fresh flower crowns for the girls add a touch of grace. Cascading, voluminous archways and hanging installations filled with wispy foliage, berries, blue gum, hydrangea and David Austin rose blooms make striking centrepieces and create stunning settings, taking you to an era when Romeo and Juliet defined love. Timeless.
Tell us about the Farmgate range?
We understand that everyone works to a plan and has different budgets for special events. We are happy to create and deliver bouquets, arrangements, arbours and centerpieces or can provide buckets of freshly picked flowers and foliage straight from the Farmgate. Our shed at Robertson’s Farmgate houses beautiful blooms and arrangements, foliage and homewares. We specialise in freshly cut hybrid tea and David Austin garden roses grown on the farm and stock a large variety of flowers produced locally and sourced from quality growers all over Australia.
What makes Robertson’s Farmgate stand out?
The ‘Farmgate’ story continues where it began – we all believe roses are the real deal, sleeping all winter, awakening to bloom perfectly for spring and summer brides. We agree with the sentiments of Audrey Hepburn – “Elegance is the only beauty that never fades”.
