One of our most commonly asked questions, especially on our Friday Flower Frenzy* is why our roses are dead or ugly- where are the pretty roses? Our answer, these are the pretty roses!
Roses are sturdy flowers but the process from cutting the stem to getting them to our shop is a journey. The outer most petals are guard petals and these petals are left on as the roses travel to protect the bud from collecting too many scrapes and bruises.
We clean up the roses by taking off the guard petals, cutting the thorns off and cutting the stem to the correct length to work perfectly in our variety of arrangements.
This process can leave these roses looking like a whole new flower. The type of flower people are more use to seeing.
*Friday Flower Frenzy is a deal for half off loose flowers from our cooler.
