How to Get The Freshest Flowers From A Philippine Florist

May 25, 2008
Flowers from the Philippines are arguably among the most beautiful and vibrant flowers in the world. However, it is often difficult to choose the right flowers from the Philippines while being confident that the flowers you order will be the freshest flowers that a Philippines florist has to offer. While Philippine roses and flowers are exquisite, if you don't work with a florist that specializes in international standard delivery, the product you receive might end up less than desirable.

When you send flowers to the Philippines, there are a few key things that you can do to help ensure that the Philippine gifts are exactly what you had envisioned.

Choosing The Right Philippine Florist

When you cannot physically visit a Philippine florist, it is very difficult to gauge the quality of the flowers that they have to offer. The next best thing to visiting a Philippine florist is to visit a virtual floral boutique by using the Internet. Many top quality Philippine florists have websites where you can view pre-made bouquets showcasing their floral products.

Some sites also offer an online purchasing option where you can order a standard or tailored gift of flowers and then send flowers to the Philippines. When ordering a standard bouquet of flowers, look for sites with large, clear pictures that allow you to determine the type, quality and size of the bouquet.

Check the Philippines Florist's Supplier

Another great way to ensure that the Philippine florist you choose has the freshest flowers in the Philippines is to check their supplier of flowers. A good supplier will have dedicated facilities, a respectable client base, and often will be a member of industry associations such as the International Cut Flower Growers Association (ICFG).

Be Specific

To ensure that your Philippine gifts have the freshest and fullest flowers, and to guarantee that the flowers are the ones you had in mind, it pays to be specific. Look at the color, number, type, and even arrangement of the flowers that you want the florist to use. This will dramatically cut down on miscommunications and errors.

Philippines Roses

Philippines roses warrant a special mention in their own right. Universally loved, roses are often charged at a premium. Sometimes, Philippine florists tout internationally imported roses in their bouquets and can charge double the price. There are two main problems with this - for one, you'll pay extra for the florists import costs and secondly, roses often loose their luster and fragrance during long periods of refrigeration. Make sure that you're not paying for expensive roses just because they are imported! Instead, do some digging to ensure that the florist you buy from gets their roses fresh from the Philippines.

It pays to spend a little extra time researching your florist rather than going for the same old flowers you can find locally. Not only are genuine flowers from the Philippines of superb quality, your loved one will be impressed with your expert knowledge on florals and flattered by your determination to send the best flowers in the world!
