Preparing Peony Flowers for Sale

Peonies are sold in numbers of 5 or 10 and then put into plastic containers. The number of peony flowers in one box depends on the variety. Generally 30 to 80 flowers are put in a container.

Eighteen of those plastic containers are put onto a wagon and picked up by a truck and transported to the world famous Aalsmeer flower-auction where they are being sold and transported all over the world. Information that always should be punt on every crate: the variety, the length, the number of Peonies present and the name of the producing company.
