ROSE CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Our roses are flown in directly from the farm. For transportation purposes, they arrive packaged tightly in a cardboard sleeve. Because of the cardboard sleeve, it will appear as if there are only 12 roses, but there are 25 in each pack. If you are unsure, count the STEMS instead of the rose heads to confirm the 25 per pack. After unwrapping your roses from the cardboard sleeve, your roses will appear thirsty and wilted. This is absolutely NORMAL. Follow these steps listed below to fully hydrate them to look their best.

- When you take your roses home, be sure they are in at least 4 inches of fresh water. Leave the cardboard sleeve on for 4 to 8 hours while the roses hydrate.

- Remove the cardboard after the 4 to 8 hours and remove all thorns, foliage and any outer petals that may look bruised. This will help prevent the growth of mold or bacteria which could cause premature wilting.

- Cut stems diagonally under running water using clean, sharp flower shears or scissors. Cut approximately 1 inch from the bottom of the stem. Immediately after cutting, place the stems in water.

- Ensure that you have sufficient room in each container for the amount of stems you will be storing. Overcrowding may cause damage to flowers and effect proper blooming.

- Allow the roses time to hydrate well. It can take up to 8 to 12 hours to properly hydrate. If you see that some flowers are still drooping after 3-4 hours, it is possible an air bubble has formed in the stem. Re-cut following the above directions.

- Keep the roses in a cool, dark location away from direct sunlight, drafts, or extreme temperatures and heat.

- To keep your roses fresh, change the water if it becomes cloudy.  Ensure that your roses have sufficient water at all times. The water level will become lower and lower as your roses drink.

- You will notice your roses have petals that appear bruised, we call them "shipping petals" since they protect the rose during shipping. Upon removal of the protective cardboard packaging, carefully pluck off any brown or discolored guard petals. It is not uncommon to remove an average of 5-10 petals per rose. 

*Remember that exposing your roses to warm temperatures will help the rose to open, and storing your flowers in a cooler environment will slow down the blooming process.

*If upon first inspection, you foresee a problem with your flowers, do not proceed processing your order. Leave the flowers intact and call us immediately.

  • Roses are available year-round.
  • Our bulk roses are available in red, yellow, orange, white, light pink and hot pink.
  • Other specific colors are available upon special request. Just ask!
  • Roses feature one bloom per stem.
  • Unless otherwise indicated, rose stem length will be a minimum of 40 cm.
  • Roses are shipped 25 stem bunches.
  • Within each bunch, the roses are packed in two layers to ensure protection during shipping. From the top angle, it will appear that you only have 12 rose stems in the bunch; however, below this layer there is a second layer containing the remaining 13 roses.
  • We ship our roses in bud form. Once the rose is processed and hydrated, the bloom will open to a much larger size.
  • We ship our roses with "shipping petals" intact to protect the roses while travelling and might cause the rose to look distorted, discolored and/or bruised. Once you are ready to process your roses, you may need to remove up to 8 guard petals per rose to reveal the pristine quality rose bloom.  
  • Expected vase life is an average of 7 days with proper care and handling.
  • Since flowers are a product of Mother Nature and due to variation in monitor resolutions, the exact color tones of this flower may vary to some degree.

*Package contents and prices are based on availability and are subject to change due to weather and market conditions. 

Your flowers will arrive looking thirsty and sleepy. This is absolutely NORMAL. Please refer to our Flower Care tab on this product page for a descriptive process on care and handling instructions.
