What if You Could Give Roses that Last a Year?
Flower in a Box was started by Melbourne-based sisters Sarah and Dahlia, who wanted to create a beautiful boutique fresh flower service in the city, after finding out that there wasn’t anywhere in the area to get fresh roses and flowers delivered in a box instead of the traditional bouquets.
Initially, Sarah and Dahlia sold their boxed fresh flowers to family and friends, but word soon spread, and they opened their business to the city.
By continuing to be innovative and researching all the newest techniques in flower preservation, the sisters soon realised that they could create a rose that outlasted any other flower, while still looking beautiful – and the so-called Everlasting Roses was born.
This soon became their bestseller, and since then here at Flower in a Box we have focused our creative innovation on making sure that our roses are the very best.
Roses that Last 1 Year – the science
Of course, our method of preservation for these roses is a closely guarded secret – but the magic oils we infuse our roses in are the reason that they last such a long time.
The masters of this preservation process are the husband and wife team of Paul and Ginette Lambert, who started working with different compounds to create a mixture that would not only make their flowers ‘keep’ for an extended period, but woud also ensure that they looked as beautiful as when they were first picked.
This process included the use of glycerine, colouring agents and activation agents, that work in tandem to create a flower that looks natural, retains the natural gloss and suppleness – but also lasts much, much longer than a traditional stem.
Since 1998, when the so-called Vermont Process was created, there has been a real increase in demand for blooms that last ‘forever’. Following the trend set by celebrities like the Kardashians, everlasting blooms are an Instagram-ready statement – but, for us, they are a gift that is testament to the care and love you feel for whoever you are giving them to.
