Global Rose - Wholesale Flowers & Supplies
Review of Global Rose
Global Rose - https://globalrose.com/ - is a floral company that offers wholesale flowers, bouquets, and arrangements. They offer special pre-made products for special occasions, such as weddings and holidays and various life events.
Though their contact information list as being in Miami, in their ‘about’ description they say that they fly their flowers to Miami, and there are multiple grammar and formatting mistakes in both the website and in responses to reviews posted on third-party websites. Several sources say that they are actually based in Columbia, which in and of itself is not surprising,
as many roses and other kinds of flowers grow there for the climate.
Review of Global Rose
Reviews are very polarized. A quick glance shows good ratings of 4+ stars on five websites but
delving deeper shows a large number of unsatisfied customers. Most of the complaints are due to shipping issues, which aren’t necessarily the company’s fault, as the products are shipped via FedEx and not the company themselves - and shipping something so fragile, that’s dependent on specific care requirements like temperature, and that has a comparatively short shelf life, is always going to have at least some problems. On The Knot, at least, Global Rose does address both critical comments and praising comments, and
their explanations for those who have experienced issues do appear to be reasonable and fair. They also operate on Amazon, which adds a bit of authenticity, and
on this platform the majority of reviews are positive. Again, shipping is the main difficulty customers have had,
and this is always going to be a tough point for such a large floral company that doesn’t handle this aspect of business themselves. They do their best to prevent complications on their end by not harvesting blooms until absolutely needed for their delivery, attempting to package them as protectively as possible, and making sure that they get their flowers to FedEx facilities on refrigerated trucks; they also have policies to help address things as they arise.
Final Opinion for Global Rose
There are a few threads about whether or not the company is a scam, but I feel that I would be comfortable ordering from them. When ordering from any new company,I wouldn’t necessarily spend hundreds of dollars the first time, but I’d definitely be okay purchasing something and giving them a shot. Global Rose seems like a legitimate company, and they seem to have a passion for flowers.

Giving Gifts in Isolation
Gifts in Isolation- The last couple of years have been very unique, and very uniquely difficult. Every single person I know has been in isolation multiple times, and it’s definitely taking its toll, even among us introverts; there’s something different about being forced to isolate versus choosing to isolate, at least for me. And in my experience, one way to make such a situation a little bit more bearable is to give a gift.
Actively choosing to think about others, especially during times of suffering, is not the easiest, but believe it or not, it’s actually one of the most beneficial things you could do. Research shows that social connection and meaningful relationships, including the act of giving to others,
improve our mental and even physical health and activate the reward/pleasure systems in our brains,
which makes us feel good. Beyond just helping us to cope with stress, giving and tending to others can promote your satisfaction with life and give you a sense of purpose, and it can help foster a better perspective on your own situation. Clearly, during rough periods of life, escaping a self-focused outlook and preoccupation with ourselves and our problems to turn our attention outward can make all the difference.
Flowers are a wonderful gift to give (and to receive!) There’s a reason the giving of flowers and the prevalence of them among some of the most important events in our lives - weddings, and funerals are such an important traditions. Flowers connect us with emotion, with other people. They’re appropriate for every occasion and every age. Science has proven that flowers boost mood and improve spirits, and some can even promote a restful night’s sleep. What better way to reduce your stress than by helping someone else reduce theirs? The flowers have become so easy to purchase and send, you don’t have to do any of it in person,
which makes them the perfect isolated present.

Here are a few products to help you get start!
Dream Farm Flowers
You wouldn’t ever expect to find a place like this inside the city limits of a place like Boise, but it’s definitely a welcome surprise! Dream Farm Flowers went from unkempt horse pasture to an incredible urban cutting garden - a flower farm. This family-run business grows all their own flowers, and they use those flowers to create beautiful bouquets to deliver locally, to design florals for events, put on floral workshops, and to help consumers create their own cutting gardens. They’ve recognized both locally and state-wide, and even honored by the 2016 Idaho Botanical Gardens’ Private Garden Tour, and they give back to the community by donating to local non-profits.
Dream Farm Flowers
Dream Farm Flowers is very dedicated to the environment and sustainable practices. They support the #nofloralfoam movement, which aims to reduce usage of floral foam, or Oasis, in floral design -
Oasis is a plastic product that is not truly biodegradable (yes, not even the brands that claim to be so) nor reusable, and #nofloralfoam works to promote alternative techniques and products that are less damaging. Another example of their commitment to sustainability is their position with the Slow Flowers Movement, which aims to grow healthy, seasonal flowers in their native regions and reduce the environmental impact of the floral industry. Dream Farm Flowers puts their money where their mouth is by using methods such as crop rotation,
biological pest control, and the use of organic fertilizers and soils. Their work is gorgeous (just take a look at the photos on their website!)
and their mission is admirable - So I don’t think I’ve ever heard or seen a single complaint about them. I highly recommend visiting if you happen to be in the Boise area.

Birthday Bouquet January And The Carnation
Carnations symbolize good luck and joy for those born in January. They come in all colors, so it's easy to find one that will match your color scheme perfectly! These flowers have been used as decoration since ancient times because their beauty captivates people from every cultural background around the world - no matter what language they speak or where you're from, there is sure to be an association with this flower somewhere down deep inside us all.
The carnation is one of the first flowers humans notice and began cultivating. The plant was originally native only in Asia. Still, it eventually spread around Europe, Africa, and South America due to its beauty and easy-to-use herb for cooking purposes.
Carnations have been grown since then by many cultures, such as Aztecs. However, they used them primarily during religious rituals or funerals because they were similar to the symbolic meaning behind both practices.
Similarly, there are other ceremonies where this flower would symbolize new beginnings, like weddings, that fall within those belief systems today.
Here are some of our favorite flowers for each month. You can find that they make the perfect birthday or anniversary gift! I hope you enjoy your time here, and I look forward to seeing what else comes up with this project - it has been fun so far :)

A February Birthday Bouquet is something worth celebrating every year, no matter what kind you choose.
Long ago, the violet flower was associated with royalty and luxury. The first references to this come from ancient Egyptian paintings. They were part of an ointment applied topically or ingested during healing sessions for depression-like symptoms such as low self-esteem. It is thought effective at lifting moods when inhaled internally.
There are over 60 different types with various colors ranging between blue-violet (which can even change color depending on what time of day you see them) through white or yellow.
It's all quite rare, especially considering their beauty; many folks believe they're only worthwhile if one owns several copies because each variety will never look exactly like another.
People feel loved when they are acknowledge on their birthday. Sending a bouquet is one way to show someone that you care about them and wish them well on their special day.

Calculating How to Price Bouquet?
Calculating How to Price Bouquet?
How much do you charge for materials?
For flowers and greens, the industry charges an average 3.5% markup - that is, 3.5 times the wholesale cost of each stem, or per full bunch. So if you have a rose that costs you $1, the retail cost is $3.50; a full dozen roses, we’ll say priced wholesale at $12, would be $42.
For non-organic supplies, the markup is 2%. These supplies include tape, wire, ribbon, bouquet holders, et cetera - anything other than flowers and greens. If the cost of materials to make a bouquet is $6, then retail cost would be $12.
How much do you charge for labor?
This can be a tough question. The labor charge can vary depending on your level of expertise, how long you’ve been in the business, your location, and type of business, and even the time and effort it takes to create certain designs. I’ve seen labor costs range anywhere from 12% to 35% of the retail cost, but the average seems to be 20-30%.
To calculate: (retail cost of flowers + retail cost of materials) x labor cost % = labor cost.
Using that same full rose bouquet from earlier, and the same amount of materials, and using 20% markup for labor we have:
(42+12) x 20%
54 x 20%
$10.80 for labor.
Putting it all together
To figure the total cost of our dozen rose bouquets, we add each of our values together:
Retail cost of flowers + retail cost of materials + labor cost = total
42 + 12 + 10.80
$64.80 is the price we would give for the client!

Flower Spotlight: Glamorous Gladiolus
Flower Spotlight: Glamorous Gladiolus-
Picture this: you’re in the amphitheater of Rome’s Colosseum in its heyday. Looking up, you see the crowd cheering in an uncontrollable frenzy. After intense battles, you’re the last one standing. Members of the audience throw at you, with all their might, spear-shaped flowers of every color. You collect a few and thrust them into the air in victory. Yours is the right to live another day.
How did gladiolus get their name?
As you might have already guessed, these flowers were gladiolus, more commonly known as “sword lilies” although this vernacular name can be a little misleading. They actually belong to the iris family. They got their name from the Latin gladius, meaning sword. Given their long and imposing shape, and their close ties with history’s fiercest warriors, these perennial flowers symbolize courage, strength, and pride.
Southern and tropical Africa is the native home of the gladiolus, and where the most diversity in the cultivars can be found. Nevertheless, there are varieties that have successfully adapted to the natural terrain of the Mediterranean and of south-east Asia, where they can be found in the wild.
Can gladiolus be kept as garden flowers?
Emerging from their underground corm, gladiola plants produce one to nine non-branched sword-shaped leaves that guard at its center spikes that unilaterally produce gorgeous 3 inch funnel-shaped flowers of varying colors, ranging from white to orange or purple; plain or with special patterns or markings. But don’t be fool by their beauty. These flowers are low maintenance, requiring only a few hours of sunlight, and their soil remains moist during the growing season. They are extremely hardy: some varieties are resistant to rough winters of up to -15 degrees. If you decide to dig up the gladiolus corms just to be on the safe side, do so in the autumn after the leaves have died out, and replant them in the early spring for best results.
The corms produce smaller cormlets over time. Occasionally, divide these clumps while the corm is dormant to keep the plants vigorous. The smaller corms can be plant the following season, but it may take a while for them to reach maturity and start producing flowers.
What about gladiolus as cut-flowers?
They also make impressive cut-flowers for centerpieces or elegant bouquets when paired with dahlias and peonies, but a word of warning: they can be toxic to your dog, cat, or horse companions.

Creating a Bouquet for Any Occasion: An Introduction
What are some different bouquet styles?
There’s a bouquet style for everyone and for every kind of event! You can generally separate bouquets into two separate groups - presentation bouquets, which you often see given to winners and runners-up or performers, and hand-held bouquets, which are what you usually picture when you think of weddings. Presentation bouquets tend to run along the same lines,
but hand-held bouquets carry a much wider range in design and size! Several of the more popular and most commonly used forms of hand-held are hand-tied bouquets, cascade bouquets, and round bouquets.
What materials are need?
To craft any kind of bouquet, you need a sharp pair of floral snips or a floral knife, rubber-bands, and a bucket with water - as well as your flowers and greens! Here’s a nice assortment of roses to get you to start: https://nbuflowers.com/products/100-assorted-roses-beautiful-fresh-flowers-4-different-colors-delivery-saturday-july-3
Other materials depend on what you’re going for and what you’re working with. For example, a presentation bouquet is often wrappe in tissue paper and/or cellophane, and you might want a ribbon or burlap to wrap stems in. Do you need some floral wire or floral tape to help shape or reinforce some stems? Hot glue nicely secures slippery fabrics like satin, and if you like a more contemporary look, you can also feature unique accessories like buttons or wire or jewels. Bouquet holders can be useful, particularly when you’re building more complicated designs or are new to floral arranging: https://nbuflowers.com/products/oasis-wedding-belle-box-of-6-bouquet-holders-large-clear-straight-handle
What are some basic guidelines for forming a bouquet?
To form any bouquet, you need to first prep your flowers and greenery. Strip all foliage that won’t be seen off the stems, and de-thorn if you need to - no one likes getting stabbed. Keep any items you aren’t immediately working within water to help keep them in good condition.
Another general rule is to work with the natural direction of your materials. If your flowers and greens are incline to bend a certain way, it’s much easier to incorporate that natural flow than it is to fight against it. In a pinch, some manual shaping can be done with floral wire on sturdier stems. Creating a Bouquet of nice flowers.
Once you have your bouquet put together, remember to trim all stems to the same length!
