Colombia is one of the few countries in the world with optimum natural year-round conditions for producing top quality flowers. Thanks to the country’s geographical location in the equatorial Tropic Zone, and its three mountain ranges there is a wide ranging topography to be exploited and enjoyed; featuring mountain plateaus, low-lying plains and inter-Andean valleys located at between 1,500 and 3,000 meters above sea level, the country lays claim to a variety of micro-climates. These offer the ideal sunlight, humidity, temperature and fertility conditions for sustaining a robust flower-growing sector that has positioned Colombia as the top supplier of flowers to the North American market and as the second largest flower exporter in the world.
We are in partnership with flower growers located in the Bogota plateau. We have selected this region as the exclusive producer of our products due to its optimal climatic characteristics. Sitting 2,600 metres (8,500 feet) above sea level at 4 degrees North latitude, the Bogota plateau has an average temperature of 13 degrees centigrade, a high rainfall count coupled with high humidity allowing for an abundance in water resources and creating a utopia for growing flowers; optimum climatic conditions for growing flowers and minimum storage time between cut and delivery is how we guarantee quality to all our clients.
Colombia Direct has been importing and delivering flowers to florists in the Dorset, Hampshire, Devon, Berkshire and Sussex regions for over 10 years. We specialise in the online trade/delivery of flowers to local florists and believe we offer a unique and special service - guaranteeing the most fresh, high quality flowers at the lowest possible price.
We are able to deliver this service via our online store which allows our customers to make orders Direct to the Colombian growers. Upon receiving the order confirmation from your purchase, the growers cut the flowers to order and carefully package them ready for export. A seamless, high quality and low cost service for the UK’s local florists.
