The blindfolds go on and the fun begins with Pat Gustaf. In this video, our clever group had a little trick in store for him, and yet he surprised us with the things he could do while blindfolded!

The best way to detect a good rose? Squeeze it! Pat tells you in the video what you should feel in a quality rose when you give it a little gentle pressure. The leaves tell a story as well.

By following Pat's advice, you'll never bring home roses again that immediately fall apart, slump over or refuse to open up.

Back in the 90's I worked as a florist for Pat and his sister Jean. Their commitment to quality flowers has made them one of the long standing local full-service florists in Sioux Falls.
