Gary-with-roses

Here I am with 250 fresh Ecuador roses I had delivered for Merri’s birthday.

Ecuador roses are very reasonably priced and we offer the best value here for premium roses. I recently checked the internet.

1800flowers offered 36 Martha Stewart Roses for $259.00.

Flowerbud.com offered 50 premium roses for $135.

48longstems.com offered 50 roses for only $69…plus shipping… $22.94
or a total 91.94.

www.overstock.com offered 50 roses for $94.99.

We charge only $79 for 50 fresh cut, premium roses, including Fedex overnight delivery.

This is  a great price because these are Premium Quality Roses.

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, the 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 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 Fedex facility until, then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer. During summer conditions are harshest for cut roses…a special instruction is included with your roses on how to make them last.

This inspection must be done at the time of delivery and refunds cannot be processed after the roses have been delivered and the Fedex driver leaves.

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real,

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.

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 I am with 250 fresh Ecuador roses I had delivered for Merri’s birthday.

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.

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

So we offered Ecuador Christmas roses and sold over 9,000 raising $3,660 for LOTS!

This is a batch of 100 fresh Ecuador roses that Merri and I enjoyed earlier this year.

Ecuador Mother’s Day Lilies


Fresh Ecuador Mother’s Day lilies and roses are now available to be delivered to your home in the USA. They will be delivered on Tuesday 5th May in the USA only. Final orders can be accepted Thursday April 30th at 10am Eastern time.

Last year Merri surprised me on Father’s Day not with roses but 25 fresh Ecuador Lilies! I was thrilled at their beauty, aroma and endurance. Here are those Ecuador lilies in our home.

ecuador-easter-lilies

This year we purchased Ecuador Easter lilies.  They were delivered April 8.

The Ecuador lily orders are of 25 stems but each stem has three or four buds… so the order delivers about 100 flowers!  There are so many I had to put them in three vases where they were still going strong when I took these shots April 16 none days after delivery.

ecuador-floral-information

They are wonderful, fresh and they last!

Spme of the Easter lilies (though some have passed) are still looking good as I write this on April 23, 15 days after delivery.

Here is one of the three Ecuador floral arrangements six days after delivery, at the entrance to our home…

ecuador-floral-information

another on our fire place mantle and…

ecuador-floral-information

the third Ecuador lily arrangement in our dining area.  The aromas were intoxicating!

Even three Ecuador lily arrangements left the vases crowded.  I could have filled five or six vases.

ecuador-floral-information

Wonderful and beautiful.

ecuador-floral-information

We asked our flower supplier if he could deliver Ecuador Mother’s Day lilies and he wrote:  The price for lilies is $68 per box.  Each box has 25 oriental lilies.  These are the bigger Easter lilies. We have pinks, pink bicolors and whites.

As with fresh Ecuador roses, we have added $19 to the price so 25 Ecuador Easter lilies is $87.

We will donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor for each order. Just as we do with Ecuador roses…  we lose a couple dollars on each purchase.

You can see why we are happy to donate this at Ecuador rose thanks.

You can order Ecuador Mother’s Lilies here.

Fedex will deliver them directly to you in the USA from Ecuador.  We regret that due to customs difficulties. Fedex will not deliver them in Canada.

Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable lilies, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’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.

I will forward your order to Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator who will follow your order from the farm to your home.  He will first email you to make sure you get the color choice you like best and coordinate your delivery time.

If you do not respond to the plantation to indicate a color choice and time, the flower growers will send the best available color combination for the first possible delivery.

As mentioned this is not a deal that helps my pocketbook. I am paying $60 to deliver these roses to you. I donate $20 to the charity. I pay my credit card discount. At the price we charge I am down two or three dollars for each 50 roses. That’s okay…the cause is worthy and Merri and I will be much richer in the heart.

Ecuador Floral Information


Here is information about Ecuador floral opportunities… plus an Ecuador floral idea from this picture…

ecuador-floral-information

Merri and I love flowers. Right now we are filling the house with our mountain spring flowers like these.

ecuador-floral-information

Yet we supplement our North Carolina flowers with Ecuador floral arrangements like these Ecuador lilies.

ecuador-floral-information

Ecuador floral opportunity is one reason we love Ecuador. When we are there, we can have dozens of fresh roses every week.

What would a floral arrangement of 50 long stem roses delivered to your door, cost in the US?   A lot?

Not so much if they are Ecuador floral arrangements. This is why Merri and I regularly have Ecuador roses or lilies fedexed to us from Ecuador.

They are wonderful, fresh and they last!

Take for example our latest order of Ecuador lilies.  They were delivered April 8.

I screwed up.   Our arrival was delayed until April 11, so Fedex left them sitting in our green house in freezing weather were they stayed for at least a day and a half.  It was freezing… yet these fresh Ecuador lilies survived and thrived.

The Ecuador lily orders are of 25 stems but each stem has three or four buds… so the order delivers about 100 flowers!  There are so many I had to put them in three vases where they are still going strong.

By Easter they looked great.  Here is one of the three Ecuador floral arrangements on Easter Sunday six days after delivery, at the entrance to our home…

ecuador-floral-information

another on our fire place mantle and…

ecuador-floral-information

the third Ecuador floral arrangement in our dining area.  The aromas were intoxicating!

Even three floral arrangements left the vases crowded.  I could have filled five or six vases.

By April 16, the flowers were still looking great… nine days after delivery.

ecuador-floral-information

Wonderful and beautiful.

ecuador-floral-information

I do not stop enjoying my Ecuador floral arrangements after they are tired either.  I dry most of my rose bouquets once they are tired.  This floral bouquet is drying in our kitchen now.

ecuador-floral-information

Here are my last two Ecuador rose orders… one in our kitchen.

ecuador-floral-information

These Ecuador roses had brilliant colors and the dried bouquet remains colorful.

Another arrangement on our fireplace mantle was of of lighter shades and  is more subtle…

though still beautiful.

Ecuador Floral Information.

Being on the equator, Ecuador flower farms have an ideal environment for roses and other flowers.  The high elevation provides proximity to the sun, but cool nights. These are perfect growing conditions for long, straight roses.

Ecuador’s cut-flower industry supplies roughly one-third of America’s roses. A third of Ecuador’s yearly production is exported to the U.S. for Valentine’s Day.   Over 95% of Ecuador’s flower exports enter the U.S. duty-free under a U.S. trade program for Andean countries.  Other than oil, flowers are the largest recipients of Andean trade benefits.

There is Ecuador floral opportunity because over the past two years more than 33% of America’s florists have shut down.

As large retailers increased the quantity and lowered the price of poor quality flowers,  outlets for high quality flowers have suffered.

Even before the economic downturn US traditional florists were in a continuing negative trend due to this downgradng of the market.  There was increased channel chaos as the remaining companies tried to find ways to cgain a larger share of a shrinking pie.  Some importers who normally sold solely through the traditional channel started selling to the mass market.  Some wholesalers began direct from farms and bypassing importers, even selling directly to consumers.

See how this creates opprtunity at Ecuador flower income.

Because Merri and I will not be on this tour we have reduced the fee from our normal $999 – $1,399 to only $499 or $749 for  a couple.

You will learn directly from the contacts we introduce to you.

Then you can join Merri and me before or after the tour at one of our International Business Made EZ  courses.  The Business Made EZ course mission is to help you learn how to start, organize and develop your own internet business that can help you in publishing, exports or any type of business.

The tour’s mission  is to help you actually find products that:

#1: Can be sold to easily identified markets.

#2: Can be marked up many times while allowing a fair trade for the indigenous.

#3: Can be imported in a suitcase.

The tour lets you see in a practical way  how to achieve the goals we teach in the course.

On the tour  you learn from tour leaders who have practical experience from the shipments that they have actually incurred in their own Ecuador export business.

You learn the problems encountered and how to avoid them. (This alone will save you far more than the course tuition.)

Which products? On the tour you visit carved wood, architectural and decorative woods designs in San Antonio de Ibarra.

Textiles from Otavalo.


Here is one of the vendors in Otavalo photographed by delegates at an Import-Export course.

Religious Santos and Icons from San Antonio de Ibarra

Jewelry from San Goqui.

Paintings from all over Ecuador.

Here is an example of one type of art that a previous course delegate is having made from recycled paper and a metallic paint. Their Reiki symbol line of art is sold as fast as they c0uld get it produced.

Leathers in Cotacachi.

ecuador-export-leather

Here are flowers I imported that were grown in Imbabura.

ecuador-roses

I regularly import roses from Ecuador at a fraction of the price you normally pay. Here I am with 250 roses we had delivered to our home in North Carolina for our own home.

You will visit many of these places and more so you can start your business directly from the tour.

Before or after the tour, you can attend our International Business Made EZ course (at a $499 discount)  to learn the fundamentals,  where you have visited these places, seen the goods and met contacts who can back you up (or even act as a joint venture partners).

Learn how to enjoy the finest things in life because of international friendships plus how to develop them.

We have developed contacts with top Ecuador businessmen, bankers, accountants, attorneys, marketing experts, business consultants, agents all over the country that can help you, large or small, full or part time.

There you have it, valuable contacts and knowledge about timely and fulfilling business opportunities that you can cash in on now. Regardless of whether you want your business to make millions, or just add excitement and adventure in your life, to reduce tax or even live abroad, the Ecuador Export Tour can help you get involved with something you love and turn after tax costs into tax deductible expenses.

Whether you have a successful business, want a part time business for change or as job security, this course can be of enormous value to you.

The three day course can be combined with our International business and investing courses or taken on its own.

The $499  is nominal compared to the incredible education you gain and the importance of the knowledge for you and your family’s wealth now.

One delegate who attended our Ecuador export expedition wrote:

Our business of selling Ecuador products is still going well. We are now appointing Agents across Australia and should have the whole country covered by mid-August. Our initial shops continue to re-order on a regular basis. The best shops seem to re-order every two weeks.

We have also received inquiry to provide buying services for people in a few other countries. So we will be seriously thinking about starting our own brand name to market globally. If successful, it should help many Ecuadorians.

Another couple who attended this expedition sell the goods they export at flea markets.

They wrote: Good Evening Gary/Merri.  Speaking of a small business, we have opened All American Enterprises, LLC (AAE) which includes selling products from Ecuador at a trade days operation about 200 miles East of Dallas.  I don’t know if we are off to a “bang” but we are sure having fun.  See attached pictures to include our model Consuela trying to look indigenous.

Please tell Merri we have made profit on our inventory and the big sellers are alpaca silver jewelry and Octavalo alpaca ponchos.  We will visit  at the end of September and would like to restock to include blankets/ponchos/throws from Hilana.

Space makes it impossible to explain everything in the course, but I am convinced if you try it, you will find it improves your entire way of life! There has never been a time when the risk of higher tax, greater unemployment and investment dangers were higher in North America , but neither has the opportunity for small businesses abroad been so outstanding.

Here is one of the silver workers we visit.

Todd Smith, another attendee, wrote this:

Recently Gary recommended a printer in Cotacachi, Ecuador, for me to use to print my photographic greeting cards.  I was quite skeptical about doing business in Ecuador, both for the hassle of sending money, shipping the product, and most importantly the quality of the printing.  As a photographer, I am quite picky about printing.  But, after three years of good experience with Gary, I decided to take another risk and try the printer.  The results were outstanding–better than many press jobs I’ve seen in the US, and the price was terrific.

I’ve learned that Gary likes to push his students to try things they thought were too risky.  Gary lives on the cutting edge.  But, interestingly enough, I don’t think he is really a risk-taker, because his feet are always firmly planted on the ground.  I’ve learned over time that I can trust Gary’s thinking, and that he really does come up with some unusual, and very effective, solutions to problems that I’ve tried to solve on my own.

My suggestion is simply to try out Gary.  You may have to risk some money, but my experience has been so positive that feel safe in saying that the risk will be well worth it.  Of the $1000 or so that I invested , I have earned many thousands in return, and have created a lifestyle for myself that is far more fulfilling than anything I had previously.

I did the import/export course last year in Cotacachi, though I was in Ecuador mainly for photography.  While I was there, I met one of Gary’s contacts in the rose business.  We went to his plantation and he was very willing to work with any of Gary’s students to export flowers to the US or Canada.  He showed us prices that appeared to me as if they would form the basis of  a very profitable floral business.  He also explained how the flowers are shipped FedEx directly to you, and they are cut fresh before the shipment.  This means that the flowers you resell will last much longer than those that have been sitting in a florist’s shop forever.  This could be a significant advantage over the competition, and could generate some very satisfied customers.  Sincerely,  Todd Smith

Here I am with Todd Smith trying new tailor made Ecuador suits  that cost $135 to $200…an excellent Ecuador export.

ecuador-exports-bonnie

My name is Bonnie Keough. In March 2006, I went to Ecuador to attend Gary and Merri’s import/export course.

I was hoping to find items to bring back to the States and sell. I love to travel and was looking for business ideas that would enable me to do that.

I had never been to South America (never even considered it) before so it was an adventure. I didn’t know what to expect, but I had been reading Gary’s newsletter for a while and I was impressed with the Scott’s honesty and integrity. They don’t promise overnight success or try to sell you a business opportunity. They share their wealth of experiences, open doors for you and educate you on the possibilities and opportunities available. It’s up to you to implement what you learn.

I found so much more than high quality products in Ecuador, the people I deal with are kind, hard-working folks who truly appreciate my business and I appreciate their honesty and skills. I have returned to Ecuador 6 more times since my first trip and each time I leave I’m anxious to return.

I always personally select all of the items I sell. By doing this, I’ve learned a lot about quality, prices and sources and I enjoy interacting with the people. But it is hard work and not everyone enjoys that aspect of the business. You will have to decide how much you want to participate.

Don’t expect to find mass produced items in Ecuador. If you have an idea for a product, it is a great place to have items custom made. It’s possible to find high quality labor intensive pieces, such as hand knit sweaters or hand woven rugs, at very reasonable prices.

If you have a genuine interest in pursuing an import business, whether in Ecuador or elsewhere, I’m sure you will benefit from the import course. It’s a great introduction to the country and opportunities available there and provides a background on the nuts and bolts of the business. It opened a doorway to a new life for me.

We stress that this is a course combining theory and practicality…but this is a true expedition! You’ll be having fun as you view products, interview, bargain, meet, search and many will even buy. Those who are just looking for a “classroom experience in a hotel” should not attend. Everyone will be out in the field looking and examining and finding. Bonnie.

Ecuador Flower Income


Here is a way to earn income and help the environment and the poor… with Ecuador flowers.

ecuador-flowers

Our last three messages have looked at advice from billionaires Warren Buffet, Li Ka-Shing and T. Boone Pickens on how to use this economic correction to create wealth.

Here are quotes from another billionaire… Geroge Soros  who said:

Markets are constantly in a state of uncertainty and flux and money is made by discounting the obvious and betting on the unexpected.

This is why the current market downturn creates opportunity.   Changes in the  socio-economic paradigm create new unexpected opportunity.  As the establishments crumble, new opportunities are created.

This makes life really exciting (and lucrative) for the business pioneers who accept and embrace change.  Merri and I feel this way every day and hope to share the excitement and opportunity with you.

Soros also said:

I think there’s a lot of merit in an international economy and global markets, but they’re not sufficient because markets don’t look after social needs.   I’m not doing my philanthropic work, out of any kind of guilt, or any need to create good public relations. I’m doing it because I can afford to do it, and I believe in it.

Merri and I could not agree more.  We have been involved in international business for 40 years, but became involved with Land of the Sun Foundation (LOTS) because we want to help the poor beyond business..

Soros’s final sage comment is: The worse a situation becomes the less it takes to turn it around, the bigger the upside.

There are several ways to take advantage of the current economic situation… invest in stocks… real estate… commodities or  to have or start your own business.

This is why I am writing this series on Ecuador business ideas and have focused on the environment and using organic products which helps all three of the problems above.

This is also why we have for the past two years been offering Ecuador roses to help LOTS.

Now we have combined a way for our readers to develop extra income and help the indigenous poor with Ecuador flowers.

Robert Ribadineira, our flower supplier,  has now created a Fresh Flower Party Plan for flowers that can help you earn income as you help the poor.

Party plans have been  a highly successful way to introduce new ideas by displaying and demonstrating a product to those gathered at a party.

Roberto’s Premium Flower Party not only develops income potential and helps the poor but also helps resolve a huge problem that the economic downturn has created in the US.

The problem is that in the last two years nearly 30% of America’s florists have gone out of business.

It is harder and harder to get fresh premium quality flowers.  The new paradigm is that low quality, short lived cut flowers now rule the market.

Roberto’s  Premium Flower Party creates a new, fun and fulfilling way for Americans to have top quality fresh flowers in their homes.

The party plan originated with the  Tupperware company in the early 1950s. Tupperware’s success was widely copied and the idea hosting a social event in homes to demonstrate a product has become a popular and proven business model that combines fun and personal customer service.

Party plans have been used to sell items such as kitchen products, home decor, jewelry, skincare and cosmetics.

Yet fresh premium quality flowers have never been marketed via a party plan…until now.   The demise of so many florists and new three day Fedex delivery capabilities have made the Premium Flower Party a logical entry in the new economic paradigm.

Here is a note that Roberto sent to me.

“Gary, The program will begin as follows. I expect some small changes as we evolve and adjust to circumstances.

Leather Leaf Fern

Last year Merri surprised me on Father’s Day not with roses but 25 fresh Ecuador Lilies! I was thrilled at their beauty, aroma and endurance. Here are those Ecuador lilies in our home.

ecuador-easter-lilies

The arrangements are the freshest premium quality flowers.

The can be sold at the Premium Flower Party at $19.99, a price that  is very hard to duplicate. Selling 25 bouquets at the party creates an income of $499.75 or double the cost of the flowers.

The fun is that each person makes their bouquet at the party!

We will provide a pamphlet for each customer with instructions on how to take care of flowers and 25 packs of flower food, plus a DVD that shows how to make the flower arrangement.

We plan to offer a different bouquet every two weeks so hostesses can even create a Premium Flower Party Club so guests come twice a month to make their bouquet and take it to their home.

The party hostess can also become a florist and take special orders between each party.

Each host or hostess can determine how much he or she would like to contribute to Land of the Sun Foundation… $20 or more.

Regards, Roberto

The really good news is that Ecuador flowers and roses are truly the best because there is 365 days a year of direct sunlight.

The Premium Flower Party is a good way to earn income for those who like flowers… like parties… and want to work from home.

George Soros had written a  fascinating book entitled, “The New Paradigm for Financial Markets”.  This book explains that the next generation will have to understand bubbles rather than ignore them.  He is a deep thinker with ideas several decades ahead of his time.

The flowers delivered are environmentally friendly and fair trade flowers.

Roberto’s Fresh Flower Party Plan is an idea who time has come and you can contact Roberto at roberto@webflowermarket.com

Until next message, may all your income be good and come with care.

Ecuador Flowers-Lilies & More


When you buy Ecuador flowers, lilies or roses from Land of the Sun… you are doing much… much more than filling your home with sweet scents, beauty and love.

Here is why.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

A recent message Ecuador rose thanks explained how we use the money from the Ecuador flower orders (lilies and roses) to help Ecuador’s poor.  That message outlined how a small village near Cotacachi needed improvements to their school.   They wanted to do the work. They just needed materials.

So we began.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

Yesterday they had a minga (a village work party).

We provided the cement mixer.  Plus…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

sand… gravel…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

cement and…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies stone for this first improvement.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies This retaining wall will support a higher wall for security to keep the books and computers safe.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

The village supplied their own tools… plus…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

their labor and their hearts.  Everyone helped.  The men mixed cement and moved it in wheel barrows. The women carried the stone… some in their bare feet.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

Old and …

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

young.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

Ecuador flower sales (lilies and roses) are helping this girl with a college scholarship as well.

The people all work together to move…

stone at a time. They…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

with stone…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

to carry…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

up the hill…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

for the future of their kids.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

They work because they want their energy in this improvement.

When we originally came to see this project, the people of this village were clear. They did not want money.  They wanted materials so they could do the work.

This is the way we like to donate.  Ecuador flowers (lilies and roses) bring love and beauty into your home… the best flowers in the world at the lowest price you will find… delivered in the freshest fastest way.  This service helps bring energy to these people who in turn add their effort to make the future better…  for their children. Yours and mine as well.

We also brought fruit… because this high in the mountains they cannot afford it.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

They are so grateful that…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

no matter…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

how…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

much we bring…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

we always wish…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

we had brought more.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

This village may have a small bank account, but…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

they have large hearts and high energy.

They thank you for your flower orders and send their gratefulness in every petal you enjoy.

The next step is to improve the water supply.  We’ll work on this and keep you informed.

Last year Merri surprised me on Father’s Day not with roses but 25 fresh Ecuador Lilies! I was thrilled at their beauty, aroma and endurance. Here are those Ecuador lilies in our home.

ecuador-easter-lilies

We asked our flower supplier if he could deliver Ecuador Easter lilies and he wrote:  The price for lilies is $65 per box.  Each box has 25 oriental lilies.  These are the bigger Easter lilies. We have pinks, pink bicolors and whites.

As with fresh Ecuador roses, we have added $19 to the price so 25 Ecuador Easter lilies is $84.  Order Ecuador Easter Lilies here.

We donate $20 for each order to help Ecuador’s poor.

We also offer Ecuador roses that are truly stunning!

ecuador-rose-news

You can order 50 fresh premium Ecuador roses at a lower price from our site than anywhere I have been able to find.

I checked the internet.

1800flowers offers 36 Martha Stewart Roses for $259.00.

Flowerbud.com offers 50 premium roses for $135.

48longstems.com offers 50 roses for only $69…plus shipping… $22.94
or a total 91.94.

www.overstock.com offers 50 roses for $94.99.

So $79 for 50 fresh cut, premium roses, including Fedex overnight delivery, is a great price. Even better, you can order 100 premium roses for only $119 at Fresh Ecuador Roses.

We donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor for each order.

We are now accepting Easter rose orders and Ecuador Easter lily orders.

Ecuador Rose News


There is good and bad Ecuador rose news.

The really good news is that Ecuador roses are truly stunning!

In a minute I’ll show you some great Ecuador property for sale.  First, the Ecuador rose news.

We have roses everywhere in our hotel. In the court yard where we dine.

Even in…

Ecuador roses are very reasonably priced.  The freight to the US is the big cost and here comes the bad news.

Two days ago, Roberto Ribadeneira, our flower supplier for Ecuador roses, sent me this note.

Gary I had a meeting with Fedex in which we talked about a freight change and they explained that small boxes of 50 roses are as expensive as big ones. They are raising minimum freight to that of larger boxes.  This changes our final prices a lot. It is the same cost for a box of 50 roses as one that holds 100 roses.  The new prices will be as follow:  50 roses $60.00.  100 roses $90.00 delivered.

This is the bad news about Ecuador roses.

More good news is we’ll keep our policy of charging just $19 more than our cost and donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor.

Even better news is that you can still order 50 fresh premium Ecuador roses for at a lower  price than anywhere else.

I checked the internet.

1800flowers offers 36 Martha Stewart Roses for $259.00.

Flowerbud.com offers 50 premium roses for $135.

48longstems.com offers 50 roses for only $69…plus shipping… $22.94
or a total 91.94.

www.overstock.com offers 50 roses for $94.99.

So $79 for 50 fresh cut, premium roses, including Fedex overnight delivery, is a great price. Even better, you can order 100 premium roses for only $119 at Fresh Ecuador Roses.

This is still a great value.

We are now accepting Easter rose orders and Ecuador Easter lily orders.

On the subject of value, here is a good value Ecuador property for sale.

Lee Carper, one of Cotacachi’s residents, (Lee has been here about a year)  has been helping delegates find find low end sales and rentals.

ecuador-fresh-roses

Lee found this house near our hotel that has some interesting potential… and nice views.  Meson de las Flores is at the Cathedral… so this shot from the roof shows…

ecuador-fresh-roses how close it is.  Nice views from the ground floor as well.

ecuador-fresh-roses

What makes this house interesting is that it is on two floors… each has a kitchen, dining and…

ecuador-fresh-roses

living areas…plus

ecuador-fresh-roses

Plus bedrooms so it could be converted easily into two apartments.

ecuador-fresh-roses

Yet the asking price is only $62,000. With Ecuador property prices rising, due to increased cost of building material, this represents good value.

Until next message, may your life be filled with flowers and good value!

Ecuador Easter Lilies


Fresh Ecuador Easter lilies are now available to be delivered to your home in the USA.

Over the past years, hundreds of Gary Scott readers have had fresh Ecuador roses delivered direct from Ecuador to their home by Fedex. For this Easter holiday you can have the option of Ecuador lilies or fresh Ecuador roses.

Last year Merri surprised me on Father’s Day not with roses but 25 fresh Ecuador Lilies! I was thrilled at their beauty, aroma and endurance. Here are those Ecuador lilies in our home.

ecuador-easter-lilies

We asked our flower supplier if he could deliver Ecuador Easter lilies and he wrote:  The price for lilies is $65 per box.  Each box has 25 oriental lilies.  These are the bigger Easter lilies. We have pinks, pink bicolors and whites.

As with fresh Ecuador roses, we have added $19 to the price so 25 Ecuador Easter lilies is $84.

We will donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor for each order. Just as we do with Ecuador roses…  we lose a couple dollars on each purchase.

You can see why we are happy to donate this at Ecuador rose thanks.

You can order Ecuador Easter Lilies here.

Fedex will deliver them directly to you in the USA from Ecuador.  We regret that due to customs difficulties. Fedex will not deliver them in Canada.

Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable lilies, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’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.

I will forward your order to Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator who will follow your order from the farm to your home.  He will first email you to make sure you get the color choice you like best and coordinate your delivery time.

If you do not respond to the plantation to indicate a color choice and time, the flower growers will send the best available color combination for the first possible delivery.

As mentioned this is not a deal that helps my pocketbook. I am paying $60 to deliver these roses to you. I donate $20 to the charity. I pay my credit card discount. At the $79 price I am down two or three dollars for each 50 roses. That’s okay…the cause is worthy and Merri and I will be much richer in the heart.

We cannot accept  Ecuador Easter lily orders after 12 noon Tuesday April 2,2009.  Delivery will be April 7, 2009.

You can order Ecuador Easter Lilies here.
