Flower packaging for roses: protection for stems and handler
A NEW flower packaging solution from Sirane will protect both roses from damage and handlers from sharp thorns during transportation – as well as maintaining a water supply.
Flower-Fresh rose stem wrap is used to wrap the delicate stems. The cushioning on the Flower-Fresh rose stem wrap prevents the thorns getting damaged accidentally. The same cushioning layer protects anyone handling the rose stems.
Gillian Carter, horticultural sales executive, said: “The wrap can be moistened before use, providing a water supply to the stems during transportation, and helping to ensure that the roses arrive at their destination in the best possible condition.
“Flower-Fresh rose stem wraps are available in a wide range of colours & absorbencies and various sizes. A compostable version of this wrap is also available.”
A number of innovative new flower packaging solutions and other horticultural products including natural growing mats were recently added to Sirane’s horticultural catalogue.
Alongside protective rose-stem wraps, crepe flower wraps were also added to the existing range of water-retaining flower pouches and compostable wraps/films for fresh flowers.
Gillian Carter added: “Many of our products are perfect for flower packaging and for protecting fresh flowers during transportation. We’ve used our expertise in material science, shelf-life and absorbency to develop a range of great products.
“We’ve spoken to people within the industry about the products on the market and the products they need, and the result is the range now offered by Sirane Horticultural.
“We can offer a range of pouches for cut flowers, in a range of colours, different absorbencies and different sizes, so whatever your requirement, we are able to help. These can even be used with our compostable wraps as a complete packaging solution.”
Other products in the range include compostable plant pots, and natural growing mats. Sow-And-Grow Resolve growing mats are designed as a replacement for peat, and can be used for growing cress, mustard and herbs, including those sold as live plants.
A new website dedicated to flower packaging solutions has also been launched. Thinking- Flowers.com showcases all our horticultural products, with a particular focus on flowers.
