Our harvesting and post harvesting techniques are superior

No chemicals are used to promote longevity- our harvesting and post-harvesting techniques do that for us. All of our flowers are harvested according to each varieties optimal harvest stage. They are harvested directly into water buckets in the cool of the day and are allowed to rest and rehydrate. They are never stored out of water.
