At Knight’s we are known for our flowers lasting for a very long time. One of the reasons is we test our flowers for vase life and only the longest lasting are the ones we carry. Of course, buying from great growers and following the stringiest care and handling procedures are a big factor too.
Each week we are going to feature one of our flowers and post pics on social media so you can see first hand the process we go through. We also are going to create a little contest and see if you can guess which flowers will last the longest.
This week we are going to test our spray roses. All our spray roses come from Rio Roses in Columbia, which is the 2nd largest producers of roses in the world (behind Ecuador). Rio spray roses are known for their open cut, which ensures a larger and fuller bloom and richer color. Each stem has at least four blooms, sometimes several more. These stunning characteristics you will rarely find with other growers spray roses. This makes Rio spray roses the creme de la creme of spray roses.
Once we receive our spray roses we make sure they are properly hydrated and put in a special formulation of rose food to insure the longest life. Generally, all our spray roses will last at least 7 days. Our spray roses are so popular we’ve even created a special arrangement called the ‘Rosy Day Bouquet’.
Now you can join in the fun! Tell us how long you think our spray roses will last. The first person come close to guessing the closest vase life of the roses will win a free ‘Rosy Day’ Bouquet. Just copy and paste your answer in the comment section of this post in facebook for a chance to win. Share it with your friends!
