Here is our last bouquet.

Ecuador roses can be ordered now for delivery on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The price is $79 for 5o roses.

Here are two ways to obtain 50 fresh cut roses.

The first saves $163.  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.

If you subscribe for two years, I’ll reduce the price from $238 to $159 and also send you 50 fresh cut, premium roses worth $79 FREE.  This is a $158 savings!

Fedex will deliver them directly to you from 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. I’ll give you a full $159 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.

Subscribe to two years of Ecuador Living.  Save $79 plus receive 50 roses worth $79 free…a total savings of $158.  If you already subscribe to Ecuador Living, order the roses in this offer and we’ll extend your subscription  two years.

If you do not have a great interest in Ecuador but just want these incredible, fresh roses. Simply buy them for $79 for 50 fresh cut roses including delivery by Fedex.

This is not a deal that helps my pocketbook.  We are paying $59 to deliver these roses to you.

We donate $20 to the charity. We pay my credit card discount. At the $79 price, I lose two or three dollars for each 50 roses shipped.  That’s okay…the cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make…for the poor  in Ecuador.

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.

Fedex will deliver them to you within four days of being cut in Ecuador. Open them with the Fedex driver. If you are not satisfied do not accept delivery and have the Fedex driver take them back. Let me know. I’ll give you a full $79 refund.

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,
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.

Dining-room-roses

Here is a red and bi color combination of fresh Ecuador roses we had delivered to us in North Carolina.

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
-complete health and safety equipment provided free -helmets , gloves, masks, etc
-paid maternity leave with a guarantee of work when they want to return
-overtime paid over and above the legal requirements
-Christmas parties, summer holiday excursions, sports tournaments
-a safe and secure work environment with job satisfaction and potential for personal development

There you have it…three great reasons to experience the warmth of the people and beauty of Ecuador…The freshest…best roses…and you help the environment and the poor by having them delivered into your home.

Your 50 roses will come packed in a special box with two colors of 25 each.

You can still order the 50 fresh cut roses for $79 ($20 is donated to LOTS) here.

seminar-roses

These are fresh Ecuador roses delivered to our North Carolina office.

“Orders received before 9 am on Sunday will arrive the following Thursday or Friday.

Orders received after 9 am Sunday through 9 am Friday will
arrive the following Tuesday or Wednesday.”

The plantation will send a “how to care of roses” page in every box to ensure the proper care of the product.

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.

We cannot accept  Ecuador Mother’s Day lily orders after 12 noon Tuesday April 2,2009.  Delivery will be May 5, 2009.

Ecuador Rose News


There is good and bad Ecuador rose news.

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

ecuador-rose-news

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.

ecuador-rose-news

In the rooms.

ecuador-rose-news

In the hallways.

ecuador-rose-news

Even in…

ecuador-rose-news

our food displays.

ecuador-rose-news

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!
