How Are They Transported From Farms To Homes
How are cut flowers transported?
The transportation of flowers that have been already cut before is very difficult and they need to be transported with utmost care. Firstly, one must wrap the cut flowers into wet cotton wool. This helps in maintaining the moisture level in the flowers. After that plastic bags must be tied around the cotton wool and they must be tied with rubber bands quite carefully around their stems. These flowers must be laid flatly in boxes and be transported either in cars or in hands. This is done so that flowers are not overturned in the boxes. If you are transporting fragile flowers try to keep them in containers of the shape of vases. This must be supported against a strong background so that they do not fall with the turn of the vehicle. The last but the most essential thing is to keep them in a cool environment in the vehicle. Falling this might make your flowers lose their freshness.
These cut flowers are used mainly for planting them in bouquets or transporting to markets etc. They can also be used to plant in homes but then you just need to cut them from almost their root levels so that your flowers are lively when they reach your flower pot.
