The Little Bloom Box is a company based out of Etobicoke, Ontario, and are known for their product ‘Eternal Roses’. The rose is a flower that is heavily tied to feelings of affection. To most, a rose is a symbol of romantic love, and the act of giving someone you love a rose, or roses, is always highlighted in the media. Imagine the look on someone’s face, when you give them a rose, and then tell them that this one won’t wilt for a minimum of two years! Two years! Talk about a huge grand gesture, right? ‘Eternal Roses’ are a perfect way to surprise that special someone
Care and Upkeep:
Eternal Roses from ‘The Little Bloom Box’ do not require ANY care! This means they don’t need sunlight, or water. The company advises:
- To keep their flowers in a shaded area, where it wouldn’t be exposed to direct sunlight, or any excessive heat, as it will cause the blooms to dry faster, and to discolour. When the blooms are dry, the petals are more than likely to fall faster as well.
- The blooms are best kept in their original box. They are similar to fresh roses, that when they are handled a lot, the petals fall and die faster.
- Best kept in cool areas, inside the original box.
- The roses are preserved to last a long time, so they may shrink slightly after a couple months, and begin to display slight discolouration. This is normal.
- Until the rose turns brown or begins to rot, the flower has not yet died.
