Rose grower Doug Pacey
I have been in the rose industry since 1965.
My career started at Gregorys Roses in Nottingham where I budded over 4000 roses a day.
I then become the manager of the rose section of a dairy farm in Chichester where we were growing up to 350,000 roses. It was during this time that I met my wife Sue, a NZ girl on a working holiday. We were soon married and came out to New Zealand where we established D & S Nurseries in sunny Hawke’s Bay.
We have been growing roses at D & S Nurseries since 1987. We started on leased land in Hastings and then moved to Central Hawke’s Bay. We have 24 acres to grow our roses on, roses are a 2yr crop which we rotate every 4 years so the land has a rest and is put back into grass.
We have made a commitment to develop our client’s accessibility to our extensive rose catalog and supply images of every rose in stock.
Please feel free to sit back and look through our extensive catalogue – to order simply indicate what you want and where we can find you.
