What are the benefits?

Due to the environmentally friendly preservation method, the longevity of flowers greatly reduces waste and transportation costs in comparison with imported cut and artificial flowers. Overall, the carbon footprint activity is greatly reduced with sustainable preserved flowers.

Are they real roses?

Yes, they are. The preserved roses are made of a specifically selected species cultivated on the Emihana farm in Cayambe, Ecuador. The harvested roses are treated using a special procedure that extends their shelf life with several years without compromising the roses’ natural shape and radiance. The roses can then be produced in nearly all colors imaginable.

 

How long do the roses last for?

With proper care, the preserved roses can last up to a year. Because of the preservation process, the product can maintain the beauty of a rose in bloom.  The preserved roses can last longer if maintained well however please note that we do not have control of the environment as soon as the product leaves our site.

 

How do I look after the roses?

The exceptional properties of a rose, especially its color and shape, are best kept if exposure to direct sunlight, moisture, and extremely high and low temperatures are avoided. Under the right circumstances, the rose will maintain its perfect condition for a very long period.

In other words, do not water and avoid direct sunlight.

Do you ship overseas?

We ship nationwide and can ship overseas depending on the order. 

 

Do you allow pick ups?
