Shelf / Vase life
Shelf or Vase life is an important aspect of the quality of plants and flowers. It provides an understanding of the life of plants and flowers among consumers and is therefore essential to such things as quality marks and guarantee programs. Shelf/vase life tests provide important information on such aspects as the length of transport and conditions under which the plants and flowers are transported. They also provide an insight into issues such as botrytis, bloom length, flower opening, ripeness etc.
This is reason enough to perform shelf/vase life tests. We would like to help you in performing your own shelf or vase life tests. You may also contact FloraHolland’s Knowledge Centre Product Quality .
