Our flowers come straight from the flower auction and at the time you order plants from us they will still be in the grower’s greenhouse. This means you are always assured of a super-fresh green purchase. But how is your fragile bouquet or plant packaged for transportation? The answer: extremely securely thanks to SendProof’s clever flower and plant boxes.
Optimum protectionSending flowers and plants by post may sound a bit ... tricky. But at Paardekooper Group we believe that where there’s a will there’s a way. So we got together with PostNL and between us we developed a new flower box and three new plant boxes. The innovative SendProof mailing boxes have been designed in such a way that your fresh purchase will be optimally protected during transportation and guaranteed to be delivered to you in perfect condition.
The bouquet or bunch of flowers you order from us will be packed in a sturdy SendProof mailing box made of FSC-certificated Kraft cardboard. A cardboard insert in the bottom of the box will ensure the flowers do not move around in the box. Most flowers cannot survive for long without water. This is why we use a clever system that enables your flowers to drink while in transit. As soon as they arrive fill a vase with fresh water and add the contents of the sachet of cut-flower food that came with the flowers. Then cut the ends of the flower stems off at an angle so that when you place the flowers in the vase of fresh water and flower food they can absorb all the water they need.

The flower box as ideal gift packaging
Do you want to send a bouquet as a gift? Our flower mailing boxes are so attractive they also make ideal gift boxes. The ‘door’ printed with the text ‘Flowers’ gives the box a deluxe look. When the recipient opens the door and sees the beautiful bouquet of flowers the surprise will be complete.
At the time you order plants from us they will still be in the grower’s greenhouse. So they couldn’t be fresher. Your order will be packed in a sturdy SendProof mailing box made of unbleached FSC-certificated Kraft cardboard printed with an attractive design. First the plastic inner pot is wrapped in a protective plant sleeve and then it is held in a cardboard insert that fits snugly in the bottom of the box and ensures the plant(s) cannot move around in the box and be damaged while in transit. Thanks to the two handy cut-outs in the sides the plant box can very easily be carried upright.
The right plant box for every plant
In our webshop you will find plants that are 20 cm tall and plants that are over a metre tall. This is why we have developed our plant mailing boxes in three different heights. Together the series ensures we can mail (virtually) every type of indoor plant. If you have ordered a combi-box or plants delivered in twos, threes or fours, no problem – thanks to the special cardboard insert they will all fit together in the plant box very neatly.
