Our fresh cut roses are certified "Green" by the Rain Forest Alliance and Veriflora. These organizations make sure that trade is beneficial to all, people and environment. Organic roses appear to have more fragrance (in yellows and purple)and last a little longer. There are literally hundreds of different rose varieties to choose from. Throughout the year we try all types in order to always offer that unique color and because we are crazy for roses.
Some of our favorites rose types are: Forever Young and Freedom for Red Roses, Mohana for Yellows, Manitou for Oranges. Blush, High Magic and Candia for Bi-color roses, Engagement for whites. Black Magic for deep velvet red/black tone color.
Check this week color availability or special order your favorite type. Thanks for stopping by.
You will need to re-cut the flower stems to prolong their freshness.
How to properly cut stems. If your flowers were shipped with water vials, remove them and cut the stem. Ideally you should cut about an inch from the bottom of each stem, at an angle. Once the stem is cut place it immediately in the vase. Cutting at an angle maximizes the amount of water that can be absorbed by the stem.
For optimal vase life (over seven days) repeat these steps every three days. Take the flower out of the vase and clean it with hot water. Refill the vase with clean water and flower food. Cut your stems an inch and place in the vase.
On a daily basis check the water level and add water as needed.
If your roses begin to wilt, you may be able to revive them. Trim off a couple of inches from the bottom of its stem and then submerge the entire rose under water in a sink or bathtub. Allow the stem to absorb water for about 20-60 minutes before returning them to their vase.
Roses last longer in a cool area, but if you want their blooms to open quickly, temporarily place them in a warmer spot.
(Note: not hotter than 80 degrees Fahrenheit).
