When you have ordered roses from Meijer you will notice that the heads are a bit more open than roses from other growers. Don’t worry, this doesn’t have a negative effect on the vase life of the rose. Meijer lets the roses mature on the bushes, which makes the roses stronger and the blooms more open. This special way of growing ensures a beautiful full flower head. You should use this as a general rule when ordering roses from our Pre-order: how longer the stem how bigger the head of the rose.
How they do it
Meijer goes for quality over quantity, so they do not push the crop to grow. Using this method produces better and stronger stems. To protect the crops they use insects instead of chemicals and they let the crops rest for at least 6 hours a day.
When harvesting roses, it all comes to choosing the perfect moment to cut. After cutting, they let the roses drink for at least 12 hours before packing. In this way, the flowers get stronger and it gives them the opportunity to have a good drink before they are put on transport. This ensures a good quality and durability.
Meijer has managed to find the balance between the durability of the flower and its bloom. Their roses integrate these two factors perfectly and thus bring an unforgettable atmosphere to every event and occasion.
