If you’re planning to send out a bouquet, you want it petal-perfect. To see what you get, Consumer Reports ordered a variety of colored roses.
The long-stemmed roses were purchased from 3 popular online florists ProFlowers, FTD, and 1-800 Flowers. When the flowers arrived, they were examined by Consumer Reports staffers. There were some surprises.
A Consumer Reports editor called ProFlowers to grumble (without revealing her identity) and received a fresh arrangement the next day. Later, ProFlowers gave Consumer Reports a statement that stated in part: we believe the damage happened somewhere in transit in between the farms and your doorstep.
