Farm-Direct Flowers One of the things that really makes us unique is our ability to purchase direct from the farmers who actually grow the flowers. Most flower shops in the Atlanta area don't have the buying power to do that. They have to purchase from wholesalers and middlemen. Buying direct offers huge advantages for Carithers Flowers and for our customers. We are able to purchase flowers in bulk, often at prices that are below what the flower wholesalers offer. The flowers we purchase are shipped direct to our store. That reduces the amount of time between when the flowers were cut and when we are able to use them in arrangements and deliver them to our customers. This means we are delivering fresher flowers to our clients. Fresher flowers means longer vase life for the stems in the arrangement, meaning you get to enjoy them longer.
Buying direct also means that we have the opportunity to purchase a higher quality product. The farms we work with all understand the high standards we have for every flower we send out to our customers. We are able to purchase premium quality, as opposed to the stock variety that many of the wholesalers grab, due to the lower prices tied to the lower quality product. We always opt for the premium grade, even though it may cost a bit more. In our minds, it's all about customer experience. Buying the highest quality product is just something that is etched in our DNA, dating all the way back to the days when Jane and Larry first started the business. It's also something that Charles and Maureen have continued to impress upon the employees who work at Carithers today.
Ecuadorian Grand Reserve Roses
Carithers Flowers has an exclusive product that we call our "Grand Reserve Roses." These roses offer even further proof of the value of buying flowers direct from the flower farms. Our Grand Reserve roses are truly stunning. They have 30% longer stems and much larger blooms than traditional wholesale roses. The blooms are simply fabulous. They are huge even when they are closed. When the fully open, the roses are simply breathtaking.
Grand Reserve roses are grown in Ecuador. The growing conditions for roses in Ecuador are excellent. Our Grand Reserves are grown high in the mountains. The roses enjoy the perfect blend of sunlight, moisture and soil conditions. As the rose plants mature, the stems and blooms continue to evolve. Our growers know the precise sizes and dimensions that we want the stems and blooms to reach, before they are cut and delivered to us. It's definitely an exacting science, but, the end product is well worth the extra time, energy and expense Grand Reserve Rose arrangements are extremely versatile by nature. They make the absolute perfect anniversary gifts. Roses are also appropriate gifts for birthdays, graduations, get well wishes and sent as sympathy flowers. Given it's tremendous versatility, the Grand Reserve Rose is definitely one of the most popular flower varieties that we sell.
