Alani’s new flower box

Isn’t she lovely?

Yes, we know, we know! The new design of our flower boxes was long overdue. At the Alani farm we were just busy-busy-busy with other things. But, as we would like to think, waiting for the box was worth it: finally our flowers will be transported in the style they so deserve. Bright yellow and with Lady Alani on the top of the box to be admired, the beautiful new Alani box is quite difficult to overlook.

Alani wishes you a loving and beautiful 2016!


My love is like a red, red rose…

ALANI_REDThe title sentence comes from a famous and classic love poem written by Robert Burns. The red rose wins every competition as a symbol of love hands-down. It is not difficult to guess red roses are the most popular flowers sent on Valentine’s Day as they represent strong feelings of love and passion. Although at Alani Gardens we love roses of every colour, we’re nonetheless happy to let you know that we strengthened our supply of reds. Magnificent Freedom and our lovely Bandleader are available for the Holidays this year. Please check out our portfolio.

Lady Margaret in State House

The First Lady of Kenya has selected our Lady Margaret to decorate State House on the occasion of the visit of Mr. Obama to Kenya this week. The rose was named after the First Lady of Kenya, Her Excellency Margaret Kenyatta at the recent IFTEX 2015.

The bright pink colour reveals a bubbly, vibrant personality. One can only love her (like we do): Lady Margaret is the floral equivalent of strawberry icecreams and beautiful walks on sunny mornings.

Lady Margaret is grown in Kenyan soil under her vibrant sun…on the Alani Gardens farm! We’re so excited! Want to meet her? Click here.

The production of Skyline, Cashmere and Diana (see picture on the left) on our Alani farm is coming on really nicely. As a result we’re very excited to announce that from Tuesday the 10th of February onwards these roses will go to auction at FloraHolland Rijnsburg. We expect our yellow, creme and pink ladies to star just as nicely in auction as they do at home on our farm in Kenya!
