I am going to be selling cut flowers this summer - both at roadside and at a local farm market. Any suggestions on how to wrap them up after the sale in order to send them safely on their way to their new home would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm going to do the same thing. I hadn't thought about wrappers because all the people who sell cut flowers at the markets here just send them on their way as a bunch of flowers with nothing else! But you've brought up a good point and maybe I will try and come up with something. I did look online that those plastic sleeves they sell and maybe I'll get some of those.

I had planned to ask friends to save me their old mayo jars and the like and just use those to display the flowers in and send people home with them so the flowers would be in water if they wanted.

The jars are a really good idea - thank you for that. If you do find a good source/idea for wrapping the flowers I would welcome that too. For my display table, the floral department of our local grocery store has graciously given me the black plastic containers that their cut flower come in. I think that they are 1.5 gallon containers and I'm hoping that they will serve the purpose for me.

I have used 1/2 gallon juice containers cut off at any level to suit the flowers. Since they are square, they stand up pretty well. I have customer that bring me cartons...it is a great way to recycle. If you want to dress it up a bit, you can sit the bouquet and carton on a piece of tissue paper (to coordinate with the bouquet), bring up the tissue paper and put a rubber band around the top. It looks like a present!

You can get flower sleeves. They are clear plastic or maybe have designs on them.

I imagine if you google plant sleeves or flwoer sleeves you would come up with a supplier.

Otherwise gift wrap or tissue paper would be niice and with a bow.
