Velvet Touch Rose Care was launched in 2003 as a career change for founder David Kinderdine. David and Vicki were amateur rose growers and decided this hobby could be converted into a business to extend their love for roses and make available expert service to the residents of the greater Washington metro region. From its birth in 2003, Velvet Touch Rose Care has experienced steady growth as a company. At the beginning of 2019 David retired and sold his company to Scott and Melody Brown, his son-in-law and daughter. Velvet Touch Rose Care now services approximately 7000 roses bushes within 100 miles from their home base. The core value that contributes to their success is a commitment to people first. Our motto is we serve people who have roses.
At Velvet Touch Rose Care we offer a variety of services; Rose Garden Design, Bed Preparation, Selection and Purchasing of Roses, Seasonal Care, Fruit Tree care and more depending on your needs.
Scott bought VTRC in 2019 from his father-in-law, David Kinderdine (founder). Scott has high expectations for continuing to grow the company and David's legacy. Having experience in Landscaping from his own business, Damascus Enterprises, Scott is able to bring his expertise and leadership skills to Velvet Touch Rose Care.

If you are considering roses, I would like to personally recommend David Kinderdine and Velvet Touch Rose Care. I commend David for his knowledge of roses including the insects and diseases that adversely affect roses. I have worked with David and Velvet Touch Rose Care since 2008. During that time I have found him and his company to be extremely responsive and helpful. His company works hard to produce and maintain quality rose care. Velvet Touch Rose Care works hard to create customer trust and loyalty. It is without reservation that I recommend Velvet Touch Rose Care.
David and Velvet Touch Rose Care have been crucial to the success of our many roses over the past several seasons. David eats, sleeps, and breaths roses, and it is obvious from how well they respond to his program. I would recommend him highly to anyone who wants real success with their roses. Thanks David!

As you and I have compared notes often this summer, from one weather extreme of drought conditions and heat to the other extreme of too much rain and too cold, this was one of the toughest summers to be caring for the good health and performance of roses. Yet even this summer (as always) you and your talented team persevered, and as a result we had a plentiful supply of gorgeous long stemmed roses insect and pathogen free with the added pleasure of shiny leaves. To those friends with whom we shared large bouquets of flower arrangements, they were jealous with envy as their roses didn't come to the standards of perfection you and your team maintain for the Belin's year after year. Thank you for another exceptional year of your velvet touch to our large inventory of specialty rose bushes with not one lost this year.

I wouldn't have a rose garden if it wasn't for Velvet Touch's loving hands. Every year my garden makes me smile with hundreds of perfect roses. Velvet Touch is a delightful company to work with and have on our property.

Thank you Velvet Touch for the great service your provide.
