Care Tips

With the greatest care we deliver our Red Naomi roses to our clients, in order to guarantee  an optimal vaselife to the consumer. We have fine-tuned everything in our production process in such a way that our roses have the potential to live on average 4 days longer than the roses from the competition.

Porta Nova works close together with Universities, researchers from Floralife & Chrysal and trade partners to constantly keep improving quality. But of course in the end it is up to the traders and florist to also create the optimum circomstances during transport and in the shops, to let our roses reach their full potential at the consumer.
