Roses by Bike, Roses in the City
February 6, 2011
Blog PictureOne week away from the biggest rose holiday of them all, and Peterkort Roses is ready!

We have a bumper crop of RED so if Portlanders (and Vancouverites) want locally grown roses for Valentine's Day, florists, you can make it happen.

Max and Christina of Love by Bike will be delivering chocolates, roses (from us!) and other love-oriented goodies with their fleet of bicycles for the holiday.

These are the same people who brought you Christmas trees by bike!

I really think this deserves its own Portlandia segment, don't you?? I love Portland!!!!!!

Countdown to Valentines...
February 1, 2011
Blog PictureIt's the week before the big Valentine flower pickup day for florists, and time for everybody to be nervous. (Did I order too much? Will ANYBODY buy flowers from me???)

It's good to remember that this happens every year and motivation to keep reaching out to customers and helping them win points with their sweeties on Valentine's Day.

Especially since it's a Monday and if they remember at the last minute it's hard to prepare!

This time of year we at Peterkort Roses are in love with (besides our sweeties) orchids! We have all kinds, cattleyas in their beauty (see picture), cymbidiums are starting up, and a bumper crop of little ladyslipper orchids is about to hit!
