Anatomy of a Bucket

We start with very clean 5 gallon buckets. We buy recycled pickle buckets and sanitize them in a bleach solution before every picking. It’s important because any kind of debris will block the plants ability to take in water most efficiently, causing stems to wilt. So we keep them clean and add floral preservative.

Next we add flowers! The following is from a OCTOBER harvest. These flowers are grower’s choice and they are in 10 stem bunches.
