Gary, I am pleased. The price for your fresh roses delivered to your doorstep by UPS or Fedex has not risen for the third year in a row.
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 are 100 assorted and pink roses in the kitchen sink delivered to 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 have 25, 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 $85.
I regret that UPS and Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.
Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people.
Open the roses. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the driver and let me know. I’ll get you a full refund. To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with UPS when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, they can be returned at the time of delivery.
To order, click on your choice. Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator, will place and follow your order from the farm to your home. He will email you a UPS tracking number the week of delivery so you can coordinate the UPS delivery time.
Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, UPS will deliver your roses to you or your recipient Thursday, May 11, three 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 fresh cut, hand delivered roses you will see, the roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists.
Fresher Quality Roses
Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air and 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 UPS facility then flown to your UPS 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. 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 checks 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.
Fair Trade Roses
In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.
The growers offer every single one of their workers:
-free doctor and medical treatment at the farm for workers
-day care facilities for infants
-free breakfast and lunch (and dinner when they work late)
-free sports and recreation facilities
-small business loans -when workers want to leave to set up their own small holding farm
-worker’s fund -for financial help with school fees to buy a car, etc.
-complete health and safety equipment provided free -helmets, gloves, masks, etc.
-paid maternity leave with a guarantee of work when they want to return
-overtime paid over and above the legal requirements
-Christmas parties, summer holiday excursions, sports tournaments
-a safe and secure work environment with job satisfaction and potential for personal development
There you have it…great reasons to experience the warmth of the people and beauty of Ecuador.
The freshest…best roses…and you help the environment and the poor by having them delivered into your home.
Here is one more way to extend your enjoyment and the beauty of Ecuador roses in your home.
Once our roses begin to bend their heads, we cut some of them short and make single rose bouquets like this.
Plus we place a rubber band around the stems and dry our fresh Ecuador roses as they age. Here are Ecuador roses drying in the kitchen of our North Carolina home.
