In the 18 months that I’ve been using products from Gardens America, I have seen a major change in my business. The high quality and low prices on my every day flowers like alstromeria and chrysanthemums open up my flower budget to specialty items. My customers love that we have higher end flowers like garden roses and calla lilies on an everyday basis. My cooler is fully stocked all week long with beautiful blooms. The product I carry from Gardens America has allowed the arrangements that leave my shop to be vibrant and full of an assortment of flowers no matter what the customer’s budget is. This has greatly increased our daily sales, as we now stand out as the shop in town that fills vases to the brim with flowers that last for ages! The conversations with my broker are an added bonus. When our relationship began, I was a hard sell for those specialty flowers. Marcela asked weekly if I was ready to try garden roses or peonies or kale, or whatever fun thing she had listed. I refused more often than I accepted, but as time went on and her products flew out of my cooler, I realized that the more I bought, the more I sold! It’s so easy to send beautiful flowers out the door when you’re excited about the varieties in stock! Processing day is like Christmas morning, every week. My shop assistants are excited and there’s a bit of competition about who gets to open the special boxes.
I have ordered from Gardens America for years through a local wholesaler that closed. I tracked the GA folks down and now order directly. What they do.. they do so well. Consistent quality and customer service keep me a fan. One of my favorite things is “Their yes is yes.” Meaning I don’t have to worry … If they sell it .. the quality and the count will be there.
Gardens will always come through for us and has the same high standards. The sales staff is knowledgeable and has wonderful communication skills. We have been able to obtain many unique products due to the continuing efforts of Gardens. They have been a valuable partnership in helping our company grow. We look forward to many more years as partners with Colleen, Amy and the wonderful connections through Gardens America.
We rely on Gardens America because of product quality, reliability and the marketing commitment they have to their trade partners. As an organization, they’re interested in developing relationships that focus, not simply on selling you more flowers, but on helping your customers recognize the benefits of Gardens products. For years, this approach has proven successful for Seagroatt Riccardi and our business has grown as a result.
Gardens America and Greenleaf Albuquerque have been successful partners since 1992. I can say that because I have been doing business with them the whole time! I’ve been with Greenleaf almost 25 years! I know when I place an order with Gardens America, I am getting the Best quality there is out there! They are in my opinion a company with high standards from their farms. When my product comes in to my business, I know it is the quality which Greenleaf Albuquerque is known for!
We have been working with Gardens America for over ten years and have yet to be disappointed! The quality of the product is always great. They do not offer anything until Colleen is sure that the farm can come through for us and it shows in the final product we receive. The color selection and quality of alstro, poms, daisies and disbuds are the best you can get! We require a lot of special requests for weddings, etc and have high standards of quality.
