The sunshine has been out of this world lately, with record highs that have our flowers turning their heads to soak up the solar nourishment while they can. Business is blooming – and we’re eager to spread the bloom across the whole of Johannesburg. While our florist is busy up to her elbows in roses, I’ve been braving the spring heat to get the bouquets delivered to where they need to go.
We pride ourselves on the freshness of the flowers our clients receive – and that means right up until the moment that they are signed over, the bouquets are kept cool with their stems soaking in a bucket of water. That in itself makes for an interesting flower delivery: I learned very early on that taking fast corners with a car full of buckets isn’t such a good idea, and results in some very damp driving. Far better for everyone if I play it cautious, and get the flowers and myself to their destination unbruised and unbent. You can’t rush a custom-made bouquet, after all – 60km/h is more than sufficient to get the job done.
While I dash off on my next delivery, why not have a look around our online store? With some flower power behind you, you can have all profit of the sun’s splendour right here on Earth.
