1. Choose flowers carefully

: Start by choosing your flowers carefully.

Be sure to choose flowers that are not yet fully open and have strong stems.

Avoid limp flowers or damaged stems, as these can indicate a lack of freshness.

2. Choose suitable packaging

: Choose packaging that offers the flowers sufficient protection.

Paper bags or special flower packaging that give the flowers enough room to breathe and protect them from damage during transport are ideal.

3. Safe transport container

: Choose a transport container that is stable and offers enough space for your flowers.

A sturdy cardboard box or bucket of water are good options.

Make sure the container is large enough so that the flowers are not squeezed and have enough air.

: Preserve the moisture of your cut flowers during transport by keeping their stems in water.

If you are transporting the flowers in a bucket, fill it about halfway with water.

For longer trips, you can also wrap damp paper around the stems to retain moisture.
