Avoid the dreaded droop this Mother's Day!

Avoid the dreaded droop this Mother's Day!

Being one of the busiest times of the year for the horticultural industry, keeping flowers fresh from cutting, through to the end user can be at times stressful and wasteful.  
 
Crowded store rooms, transportation, shops and boxes create an Ethylene filled environment which shortens a flower's life span, meaning more waste, more costs and less display time.  
 
The situation is even worse at busy times of year when ordering more stock and is magnified when different species are mixed together in storage or on display.  
 
Flowers give off Ethylene gas naturally as they age. They are also sensitive to the gas which causes them to deteriorate causing a whole host of different symptoms, including premature flowering, drooping buds, leaf discolouration and release, brown buds etc.  
 
Whether in transport, in shipping or airline containers, boxes, stored in warehouses, retail environments in displays of delivered to homes; flowers are constantly in danger of early deterioration from Ethylene gas.  
 
There is a simple and effective solution and costs pennies - Fresh Pod.  
 
Fresh Pod is a 100% safe and natural, and it works by removing Ethylene and other airborne rots, spores and molds in storage and transport which will ensure fresh produce stays in tip top condition through the journey from harvesting to the end user, giving flexibility in the sales process whilst extending the life by up to four times.  
 
Whether needing that extra help with freshness at busy times of the year or ongoing protection, Fresh Pod will save you time and money reducing waste and costs associated with it.
