Own production with modern machines
Our company is specialized in producing and selling rose petals since 2007.
All freeze-dried rose petals (and hydrangea petals) are purchased in-house as a fresh product directly from rose nurseries and flower auctions. Then freeze-dried in our own modern machines and processed by hand into the final product.
Over the years, our company has become a household name in supplying this 100% natural product to consumers, resellers, hotels and wholesalers. From 1 liter boxes to full pallets, every customer is valuable to us. The freeze-drying process is a complicated process that we try to optimize every year, resulting in an increasingly better product. New colors are also regularly tested and added to the webshop, resulting in a range of more than 50 colors.

Freeze dried & preserved rose petals
If you’re looking to add a touch of romance to a special occasion or simply want to enjoy the beauty of roses in your home, you may be considering purchasing rose petals. While fresh petals are certainly lovely, they can be difficult to store and may not last very long. Freeze-dried rose petals and preserved rose petals are two great alternatives that offer many benefits. In this article, we’ll explore why you should consider buying freeze-dried or preserved rose petals.
Freeze-Dried Rose Petals:
These are created by quickly freezing freshly-picked rose petals and then removing all moisture through a vacuum process. This process preserves the shape and color of the petals while also removing any chance of mold or decay. Freeze-dried rose petals are perfect for those who want the look and feel of fresh petals without the worry of them wilting or losing their color. Additionally, freeze-dried rose petals are 100% natural, biodegradable and sustainable. What more do you want? 100% natural rose petals and long lasting!
Preserved Rose Petals:
Preserved rose petals are created through a process of drying and preserving the petals using a solution of glycerin and water. This process preserves the natural color, shape, and texture of the petals and allows them to last for several years. Preserved rose petals are perfect for those who want to use them for long-term home decor or to commemorate a special occasion. They are also ideal for those who want the look and feel of fresh petals without the worry of them wilting or losing their color.
Benefits of Freeze-Dried and Preserved Rose Petals:
Long-lasting: Unlike fresh petals, freeze-dried and preserved rose petals can last for months or even years, making them a great investment for those who want to use them for multiple events or as long-term home decor.
Easy to store: Freeze-dried and preserved rose petals are lightweight and easy to store, making them a convenient option for those who want to use them for multiple events or store them for future use.
No wilting or decay: Freeze-dried and preserved rose petals do not wilt or decay, ensuring that they will maintain their shape, color, and texture for as long as you need them.
Versatile: Freeze-dried and preserved rose petals can be used in a variety of ways, including as table decor, in flower arrangements, for home decor, in potpourri, and more.
In conclusion, freeze-dried and preserved rose petals offer many benefits over fresh petals, including their long-lasting nature, ease of storage, and versatility. Whether you’re planning a special occasion or simply want to enjoy the beauty of roses in your home, consider purchasing freeze-dried or preserved rose petals for a stunning and long-lasting addition to your decor.
The difference between freeze dried & preserved rose petals
Freeze-dried rose petals are 100% bio-degradable, light-weight, have a natural colour and are fragile. More importantly, they do not stain. These petals are colourfast for about 3 to 5 weeks provided they are kept in a dry, dark place. After this period, the rose petals may start to lose their colour.
Preserved rose petals are also 100% bio-degradable but feel softer and do not break into pieces. These petals have been coloured and therefore the darker coloured petals can stain. Provided they are kept in a dry, dark place, preserved rose petals can be kept for between 1 to 3 years. After this period, the rose petals may begin to lose their colour.
All our products are 100% natural and can be stored simply at room temperature. Storage in a fridge or freeze is not necessary. We don't offer silk rose petals.
A and B grade
After the freeze-drying process the petals are being picked and graded by hand. We offer all colours in A-grade and can be bought per colour in 1, 2, 8 and 24 litre boxes. The outer petals are graded by our petal team as B-choice.
We offer these petals only in mixed boxes of all our most favorite colours such as red, burgundy, off-white, several pink shades etc. for the lowest price per litre and are offered in only 8 and 24 litre boxes.
These boxes are by far our best sellers throughout the year, especially in the wedding season.
