We ship your Garden Rose order directly from the Rose Farm near Bogota to ensure the best quality roses and longer vase life. These Garden Roses are only traveling for 48 hours and are cut in a tight bud stage. Here are a few things you need to know.
Upon arrival your Garden Roses may appear small and they will be thirsty after their journey, it is absolutely NORMAL. Please follow these simple flower care steps and the flowers will bloom delightfully:
If you are not used to buying garden roses, some varieties can look different from what you might expect. Some roses can show signs of dehydration or might show some damaged outer petals. The bright colors are most susceptible to discoloration of the outer petals. We ship our garden roses with guard petals in order to protect the blooms during shipping. Upon removal of the protective packaging, remove any brown or discolored guard petals. It is not uncommon to remove an average of 5 to 10 petals per bloom.
Please keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat. Remember that exposing garden roses to warmer environments (outside, a hot room, etc) will help the flower bloom, and holding your roses in a cooler environment will slow down the opening process.” If you use a refrigerator make sure there are not fruits or vegetables in at the same time due to ethylene gas that they produce and this will shorthem the vase life of flowers.
