The Flower Journey
The imported flower journey is a unique one
At All Seasons Flowers we follow a number of different steps when it comes to importing flowers in bulk into the UK to ensure our flower users receive the freshest cut flowers to their doorsteps.
The 6 steps to flower importing
Flowers and plants are planted at our growers’ farms around the world using the best quality organic matter and plant feed.
Growers and farm workers tend the flowers by bending and trimming them to ensure the quality and productivity of future flowers.
When the flowers are ready, they are cut, harvested and placed into a hydrating solution to maintain freshness and shelf life.
The flowers are graded based on their quality and appearance and placed into bunches. The flowers are then hydrated and cooled again to prolong their freshness and longevity.
The flower bunches are then carefully packaged into boxes in preparation to be transported to the airport.
At the airport, the flowers are then vacuum cooled in containers using unbroken cool chain technologies, resulting in a longer flower lifetime. Next they are loaded onto the departing plane ready for export.
When the imported flowers arrive into the UK, they are collected and transported via temperature-controlled vehicles to our nearby warehouses.
The flowers are then stored in special temperature-controlled units where they await dispatch.
The flower users’ orders are then scheduled for delivery. Once a delivery time has been set, the flowers are loaded onto our partner transport and courier companies’ vehicles and dispatched.
The flowers are delivered to our customers, who then cut and prepare the flowers for an onward sale.
