Company

Our humble beginnings started off in the beautiful city of Meru almost 50 years ago, where the first generation of our family lived. Their struggle was a bitter sweet affair but with hard work and dedication they inched slowly but surely to success. Our continuous need for innovation ensured we venture into a variety of fields. Our existing organization, Bobmil Group of Companies has always been a very industrious oriented one however growth opportunities made the group venture into floricultural. This being our very first step  in the agricultural sector, we wanted it to be an extraordinary experience for us and we knew the only way we could add value to this existing flourishing industry is by ensuring that whatever we do reflects our stand of how we do things generally, with positive spirit, flair, instinctive intelligence and teamwork.

We hail from a country which besides being rich in culture is also blessed with fertile land and it is no surprise that this is what makes our country one of the largest exporters of flowers and other horticultural products.

After a whirlwind tour from North to South and searching other areas in an attempt to look for the perfect land, we found ourselves in Timau. We felt a tug that we could not understand and explored further. We continued to be drawn by the warmth of the people, the scenic view of Mount Kenya and needless to say it was love at first sight. Timau was also a reminder of our roots, where our elders began their journey as it was close to our home town Meru. With God’s grace we did find the perfect land which was adjacent to Mount Kenya and we seized the opportunity. Also it is no secret that Timau is well known for offering the world high quality roses.

Bloomingdale Roses started its first planting exercise on 13th May 2013 and it has been an epic learning journey ever since. We are growing on natural soul and careful detail is given at each step because we want to stay true to our beliefs.  We understand that flowers are the language of emotion for all occasions and we want to ensure that your emotions speak volumes with roses from Bloomingdale.
