I am pleased. Despite a fuel surcharge and a new US customs tax… the price for your fresh roses delivered to your doorstep by Fedex is the same as last year and the year before.
You can make three or four bouquets like this with 50 roses and you simply cannot find more beautiful and long lasting fresh cut roses… anywhere.
Here is 100 assorted and pink roses in the kitchen sink at our North Carolina home.
When my mother receives her fresh Ecuador roses she loves to show them off to all the others who live nearby. By the morning they are fully opened and incredible!
Here is an example of just a baker’s dozen. She can make four bouquets like this from 50 roses.
You can now order fresh, long stem, Ecuador roses for Mother’s day until May 4, 2012 for Fedex delivery May 10, 2012. I regret that Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.
You can have 50 or 100 fresh cut (four days) roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska including shipping starting at only $89.
Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people.
The cost of roses, and especially delivery, have been rising, but we can still get 50 fresh cut roses to your home at really low rates.
Fedex will deliver them to and a card. Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’ll give you a full refund. To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied they must be returned at the time of delivery. Refunds cannot be made if the roses are delivered and the Fedex delivery person departs.

If you do not have a great interest in Ecuador but just want these incredible, fresh roses. Simply select one of the four options below for 50 to 100 fresh cut roses including delivery by Fedex.
To order, click on your choice. I will forward your order to Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator who will follow your order from the farm to your home. He will email you a Fedex tracking number the week of delivery so you can coordinate the Fedex delivery time.
Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, Fedex will deliver your roses to you or your recipient Thursday May 10, 2012 two days before Mother’s Day.
Premium Quality Roses
Your roses will be long stemmed… long lasting…. large petaled and… vibrant! You can find nothing like this in regular stores.
Some of Ecuador roses delivered this year.
Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, the roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists.
I inspected all the major websites offering roses and found when shipping was calculated, prices ranged from $259 (36 Martha Stewart roses) to $179 for 100 roses from the best ranked websites.
Recently, even the much smaller, tired roses at the local super market cost even more than the fresh long stem roses sent from Ecuador and they are not even delivered to your or your mother’s house or office.
Fresher Quality Roses
Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated Fedex facility until, then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer.
These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully. When properly cared for, they remain beautiful for 9 to 14 days and Merri and I then take them off the stems and enjoy them in a bowl for up to another week like this.
Environmentally Clean Roses
The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real,
green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:
1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.
2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.
3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.
4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.
By March of 2007 the co-op that sends your roses had certified 144 acres.
Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.
That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.
Here are red fresh Ecuador roses we had delivered to us.
