What's happening in Ecuador:

  • Growers have a hard time getting flowers to the airport: indigenous people are protesting across the country against Ecuador's government.

  • This situation is not directly related to the floral industry and is due to Ecuador's economic and environmental policies.

What to do now as an iBuyFlowers customer:

  • Please do not rush to cancel your box! Some growers can still deliver and inventory availability will be low throughout the floral industry supply chain.

  • Unfortunately, some boxes from Ecuador had to be canceled by iBuyFlowers. If this happens, you will get an immediate notification by email.

  • You can still purchase from US and Colombian growers.

As soon as the Ecuador situation is over:

  • iBuyFlowers will be the first and fastest source to get new fresh-cut flowers from Ecuador to your doorstep (while local wholesalers will have a 1 to 2 week delay due to transportation and logistics from Ecuador).

  • Ecuadorian growers can't wait to ship their fresh-cut flowers to you again!

The team of iBuyFlowers is monitoring this very closely. 
Thank you for being an iBuyFlowers customer.


----- A glimpse of the situation -----

Watch how trucks try to even use small roads to find a way to get flowers delivered to the coolers:
