The Uniqueness of Spray Carnations

The lovely flower known as the spray carnation is a variation of the standard carnation. The spray carnation, however, has more flowers than a single carnation does. The flower, which has a fair amount of cold resistance, was originally discovered in Southern Europe. Its branched stems bear flowers that come in a variety of hues, including red, pink, yellow, and purple. Carnations are also the January Birth Month Flower.

Newday Farms, together with Chrysal, have put together the best and most efficient tips that'll always have your carnations drop-dead gorgeous. So, do you want durable and beautiful spray carnations? Follow these useful tips!

Chrysal Spray Carnation Tips for Growers to Obtain the Best Results

Seval Öz likes to share her experience as a grower helping other spray carnation growers to get the best result possible:

"A proper post-harvest treatment is a must for a prolonged vase life and full blooming of spray carnations. We use Chrysal AVB upon the harvest. We soak the freshly harvested flowers into the prescribed AVB solution for a minimum of four hours and refresh the solution at recommended intervals. This secures maximum water intake for flowers which is a key to long vase life.

Newday Farms exports to many European countries like the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, and Poland. We run vase life tests regularly, and we simulate a supply chain process, to see how our flowers perform and if they meet the specific requirements of our clients. Flowers that are treated with Chrysal AVB overperform in terms of vase life and homogenous blooming.

Besides this, we use Chrysal universal flower food on all our products that are sold directly to the retail. Once at the final consumption stage, cutting down the stems by a few mm would help a lot to see lovely blooms for a longer time."

Chrysal confirms the opinion of Newday Farms:

"The durability of the blooms is greatly impacted by the post-harvest care given by the grower. The spray carnation is shielded from ethylene, which the flower is extremely susceptible to if treated with Chrysal AVB. Chrysal Ethylene Buster use in conjunction with AVB treatment can enhance its effects. Customers will enjoy themselves longer as a result of this."

Chrysal's Tips for Florists

The flower food specialists at Chrysal have some need-to-know tips for florists to  maximize the joy of spray carnations:

"To keep spray carnations in top condition in the store we advise using a solution of Professional 2. This keeps the flowers fresh, helps retain their color, and prevents the flowers from opening up too much. Your spray carnation will last a lot longer and you will experience less waste.

For floral arrangements and vases, you can use Professional 3. It contains the much-needed nutrients that your flowers need to bloom and keeps them fresh for up to 60% longer. It is also extremely important to provide enough flower food to your customers so they will be able to enjoy your work as long as possible."
