HOW TO PACK
Packaging flowers for shipping
Send fresh flowers, flower arrangements and bouquets safely by following our step-by-step guidelines on how to package flowers for shipping:
- Ensure flowers are watered: Prior to packaging flowers for shipping, keep them in water to keep them fresh.
- Secure the stems: Using cable ties or rubber bands, wrap the stems to keep them together.
- Protect the stems: Wrap the cut ends of the flowers with moist paper towel to keep the flowers hydrated during transport. Then, add an additional layer of bubble wrap, place into a plastic bag and secure with tape.
- Protect the top of the flowers: Take some newspapers or cling film to cover the tops of the flowers so that they do not get crumpled.
- Place into box or crate: If possible, we recommend to use a wooden box or a sturdy cardboard box. Place the flowers into the box, onto a bed of cushioning (packing peanuts or newspaper), and cover any empty space with cushioning material to prevent movement.
- Seal and label: Seal the box with tape and mark it ‘This way up’ or ‘Fragile’ to minimise the risk of damage from mishandling during transport.
