Red roses at our house.

A reader sent this note:  We ordered 100 roses thru Gary and Merri Scott to be delivered to our present address in California for distribution among eight ladies in the family.

The flowers arrived Tuesday, two days before the holiday just as promised by Fed-Ex. They were tightly packed in four bunches of 25 each.  They were divided into 7 dozen + 16 that ended up with my bride of 41 years. Normally with local U.S. roses one cuts the stems at a sharp angle on the bottom and stores them in the refrigerator for a couple days. The roses from Ecuador have stems on them over four feet long. These long stemmed beauties cannot fit into any domestic refrig. that I know of. Place them loosely packed into deep heavy vases full of fresh cold water and the buds open into the largest blooms you have ever seen. Change the water often enough and they will look beautiful for over two weeks. We nursed ours along for three weeks.  Jump in, – the water is fine. You will be glad that you did. Will be interested in hearing about your experience.

Take time to smell the roses and be good to yourself.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred earlier this year, we grabbed the chance.

The first time I wrote about Ecuador roses, we made a special offer and sold over 20,000 roses that raised $8,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children, to buy an  InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children and help repair an Ecuadorian school.  Since then our rose sales have been helping send Ecuador children to universities.

There and then I decided to continually offer Ecuador roses.

The minute I receive your order, I’ll put you directly in touch with the rose plantation who will reserve your color option either red, or farm’s choice.

There are seven ways to obtain fresh cut Ecuador roses for Valentine’s Day.

#1: We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.

Premium Quality Roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, these roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists. These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air, are stored in Miami, then shipped by truck and then they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you receive 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 much longer.

Here are fresh Ecuador roses at our hotel in Cotacachi.

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 some of my roses.  Compare that head size to anything you see in a store!

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.

See how to care for fresh Ecuador roses to make them amazingly long lasting.

See the steps that keep some of these roses looking good for 18 days.

After 18 days some still looked like this.

ecuador-roses

Let me add here that not all, in fact not most, fresh Ecuador flowers will last 18 days. Nine days is more the norm.

Many factors matter when it comes to longevity.  Weather conditions that affect the temperature in the Fedex delivery van will have an impact.   How long the flowers are in the van matters. How quickly you get the roses out of the box and into water affects longevity.

The types of roses delivered also relate to longevity.  Thick stemmed roses with smaller heads generally last longer than thin stemmed roses with large heads.  This however is not always true.

ecuador-roses

Some of these white fresh Ecuador roses we had at Christmas (after being severely pruned and placed three to a vase) lasted three weeks.

I have learned a few tips beyond those shown in the flower care instruction. They are:

#1: Do not crowd the flowers.  Arrange them so the heads do not touch.

#2: Recut the tips just a bit every other day when you refresh the water and plant food.

#3: When the heads start to droop cut the stem severely. The shorter stem seems to bring the flower back… perhaps water has to travel less distance.

Use these three tips and those shown in the Care of Flowers report here and be ready to be amazed at how long your fresh Ecuador flowers last.
