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.

25 Farm Choice $85

50 Farm Choice $99

25 Pink + 25 Farm Choice $105

100 Farm Choice $155

50 Pink + 50 Farm Choice $165

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.

Mother' s Day Ecuador roses

Here are 100 assorted and pink roses in the kitchen sink delivered to our North Carolina home.

50 Pink + 50 Farm Choice $165

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.

Fwd: mother's Day'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.

Last Day to Order Fresh Ecuador Valentine Roses


Our flower supplier just sent this note.  “Something very unusual has happened.  Farms are flooded with roses, so we have plenty of flowers which almost never happens for Valentine’s Day .

We can take orders and fill any new orders coming in until tomorrow at 12 noon EST.

Ecuador fresh cut Valentine Roses can be ordered from until noon EST next Thursday, February 9, 2017 for delivery on Monday, February 13, 2017.

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.

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.

Valentine’s Day Along with Longevity


Chocolates for Valentine’s Day may be gifts from the heart but most are not healthy for the heart… or any part of the body.

The cocoa in Valentine chocolates, could actually be healthy if it were not for the many other ingredients you usually find even in expensive brands.

Here is what to look for.  You will usually find high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and soy Lecithin derived from GMO soy made with hexane, which is removed but particles may be left behind.  Hexane is a neurotoxin and carcinogen.

You’ll also usually find vanillin, a substitute for vanilla.  Vanillin is made (I could hardly believe this so I researched it quite a bit) by the action of pouring chloroform on a constituent of wood tar creosote.

In addition many chocolates have artificial colors including Red 40, Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 that contain benzidine, a carcinogen and PGPR that replaces cocoa butter and is made from castor beans.  TBHQ is another toxic preservative in some chocolates.   Other ingredients you may find that have raised some health concerns include Potassium Sorbate, Carrageenan and Sorbitol.

Maybe it’s better to give health and longevity as a gift from the heart for the heart.  Why not express your love to your Valentine this year by giving gifts that enhance rather than disrupt longevity!   Here are ideas about products you won’t read anywhere else.

One idea  is a brand new book “The Ageless Boomer” just released by our friends, Jim Vigue and Dr. Joy Macci.  One disclosure, I am prejudiced as I contributed one chapter.  This is an important book to read, especially for Boomers.

vigue

Learn more about the book “The Ageless Boomer” here.

Another gift that’s great with a red ribbon around it is Purely Green.

Purely Green

Purely Green

Purely Green, a bio degradable non-mutagenic cleaner that can replace most poison cleaning chemicals normally kept in American homes.  Purely Green can also remove toxins and pesticides from fruit and vegetables.  Learn more about detoxifying food with Organic Purely Green here.

The book, “The Secret of the Ring Muscles” is also a healthy gift.

Secret of the ring muscles

“The Secret of Ring Muscles” teaches easy to do exercises that you can do while driving your car or watching TV.  This simplicity can have profoundly positive impact on natural health and longevity.

Learn more about the Secret of the Ring Muscle Exercises here.

omega 3

What can be a better gift from the heart than heart health?  Here are Omega 3 and Vitality based food supplements which we use that enhance heart health. Learn more about the heart benefits of Omega 3 here.

All of these products are covered in our Natural Health Report described below.

Or of course, don’t forget….send roses!

Ecuador Valentine Roses


Ecuador fresh cut Valentine Roses can be ordered from now until noon EST next Wednesday, February 8, 2016 for delivery on Monday, February 13, 2017.

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.

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

Here they are.

The other half go in our living room in front of the fireplace.

You can have 25 fresh cut roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska including shipping starting at $93.

The Ecuador rose plantation offers three color choices,  farm choice assorted, or red or red and farm assorted.

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.

Ecuador-valentine's-roses

Valentine’s Roses at our home.

Your order will go straight to our rose supplier who will reserve your color option.

UPS or Fedex will deliver the Ecuador farm choice roses directly to you from Ecuador.  Open them.  If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the UPS/Fedex driver and let me know. We’ll give you a full refund.

(To assure the refund, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with UPS/Fedex when they are delivered.  If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery.  You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.)

You can order 100 fresh roses and save even more.   Enjoy the abundance of 100 fresh cut roses!  Fedex charges the same to deliver 50 or 100 roses so the price per rose is much less on orders of 100.

Buy 100 and make eight bouquets of 12 roses. which make incredible Valentine gifts!

Premium Quality Roses

ecuador-roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for fresh cut roses, delivered direct to your home 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.

Environmentally Clean Roses

Ecuador-valentine's-roses

Merri loves the Valentine’s 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!

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
-workers fund -for financial help with school fees to buy a car, etc

-paid maternity leave with a guarantee of work when they want to return

The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children and to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children that the foundation provided.

So when a chance to offer Ecuador roses regularly, I thought, “Why not?”

There and then I decided to make a special offer.  Here it is.

The cost of roses, and especially delivery, has been rising, but we still offer four ways to get fresh cut roses to your home at really low rates and help create employment in Ecuador in the process.

I regret that Fedex cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.

Fedex will deliver them to you within four days of being cut in Ecuador.  Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know.  We’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.

There are four ways to obtain 25, 50 or 100 fresh cut roses and save.

25 farm choice $80.00

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, Fedex or UPS will deliver your roses to you or your recipient on Thursday, December 22nd, 2016.

Premium Quality Roses

I inspected all the major websites offering roses and found when shipping was calculated, prices ranged from $259 to $135 for 50 roses from the best ranked websites.  These prices are far above ours because this is a service Merri and I offer to our readers and the people of Ecuador.  We are not in the rose business and don’t have to add markups.

Fresher Quality Roses

You do not give up quality for the lower price.  In fact the quality of your roses rises.

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses you 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.

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.

We use fresh Ecuador roses at home and in business.

Longevity

Fwd: ecuador-easter-roses

Ecuador roses keep on giving.  After they fade, I put them in a bowl like this and for many more days of enjoy their beauty.

Then I hang them in the kitchen to dry.

Dried-roses

We make our roses last a very long time because after they begin to wilt, we dry our fresh Ecuador roses as they age and continue to use them. Here are 100 dried Ecuador roses on our stair case in North Carolina.

Roses from Ecuador Help Earthquake Victims


Your Order of Fresh Long Stem Ecuador roses can help victims of Ecuador’s earthquake.

After the earthquake in Ecuador, we created a special program for Mother’s Day that donated all our proceeds from Ecuador rose sales to the Red Cross in Ecuador.   Mother’s Day rose sales created $700 in donations that we would normally have received.   In addition, many buyers added a $10 or $20 donation amounting to an additional $210 or a total of  $910 was donated to the Red Cross.  There was also an additional $120 donated to another organization at a donor’s request.  As you can see below, that money will go a long way.

Now we have a more specific program available through our friend and attorney, Floridalva Zambrano.  We have worked with Flori for more than ten years and have found her to be a wonderful, trustworthy, caring person,

Flori has worked with the Country Assistance Strategy (CAS for 20 years) and they have a way that contributions can be made in in a very specific way, so donors can monitor and have the opportunity to evaluate and even get in contact with the people they are helping.  The target population to be assisted are in Portoviejo, Manta, Bahía, San Vicente, Canoa, Pedernales, San Isidro, El Carmen.  These are amoung the areas hardest hit by the earthquake.  Floridalva’s church has congregations in all of these locations and can coordinate things through the leaders, pastors and congregation members in those areas.  She  strongly encourages donors to channel their help through the Alliance Metropolitan Temple, which administration is subject to a national organization audit.

There are two ways to help.  The first is to order Ecuador roses.  Our flower provider will make a donation of $20 for each order to the the Alliance Metropolitan Temple and inform Floridalva.

The second way is to contact Floridalva Zambrano direct at FLORIFLORI58@YAHOO.ES

You can see more details about the Ecuador Relief Program by clicking here.

Here is how to order the roses.

These fresh roses will be delivered to your doorstep by UPS or Fedex, anywhere in the USA.  A contribution to the Ecuador Country Assistance Strategy will be made for each order.

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 some years ago, we grabbed the chance.

I wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 5,000 roses that raised $2,000 that helped Ecuador’s poor.  The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children and to buy an InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children.

So we offered Ecuador roses again and sold over 9,000 roses raising another $3,660!

This last Mother’s Day, 2016 offer Merri and I have asked our flower supplier, Roberto Ribadeneira, to pay $20 per sale to the Red Cross account set up to help with earthquake relief.

Now we are continuing this program for regular rose purchases.

This is not a deal that helps our pocketbooks.  We are donating all our rose sale proceeds to help the relief in Ecuador.  The cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make… a wonderful gift of the most beautiful roses and help to those shattered by the earthquake in Ecuador.

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.

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.

UPS or Fedex will deliver.  Open them.  If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the UPS or Fedex driver and let me know.  I’ll get you a full refund.  To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with the driver 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 UPS delivery person departs.)

To order, click on your choice.  Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator, will place and follow your orders from the farm to your home.  He will email you a UPS or Fedex tracking number the week of delivery so you can coordinate the UPS delivery time.

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, UPS or Fedex will deliver your roses to you on the next Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday if your order arrives by Saturday.

Premium Quality Roses

Your roses will be long stemmed… long lasting…. large petaled and… vibrant!  You can find nothing like this in regular stores.

mother's Day'roses

Some of Ecuador roses delivered last 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 trucks 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.
