A minimum of two trucks per day pick up product from Ever-Bloom for transport to LAX at 9:00 am and 12:00 noon.
Care and Handling
Cleanliness is an important factor when handling and caring for Gerberas. Containers must be clean and water treated with preservative. “Florarlife PRG”, the preferred preservative, is available from Florarlife. The packet of “Florarlife PRG”, included in each master, should be passed on to the retailer to ensure maximum vase life.
Clean buckets and picking carts, along with hydration in special holding tanks until moments before shipping, are part of our cleanliness safeguards. Our constant packaging research and adjustments minimize damage and keep box charges as low as possible. This allows us to offer packing options to meet customer requirements.
Our product leaves Ever-Bloom only after extensive quality control evaluation. Each flower is examined a minimum of three times by three different crew members in order to ensure that our standard of excellence has been met.
We pick and bunch Gerberas in groups of ten (more would bruise the delicate petals) and place them in carts with water treated with Floralife PRG Preservative. The carts are then moved into a temperature controlled cooler (42°F) before they are packed into one of our many different pack options. All stems are hydrated for the maximum possible time before they are packed into cards and placed into our refrigerated loading dock.
