In all cases, it is recommended to remove a wilted flower, whether this wilting happens during the sale or at the home of the customer. Wilted flowers can infect other flowers in a bouquet, if, for example, the wilting is related to Botrytis. But early wilting because of a shorter lifespan of a flower in a mixed bouquet can also contaminate the vase water. Do not forget that cut flowers with a moderate natural lifespan often require extra post-harvest care.
During the sale, wilted flowers must certainly be removed from the container vase. The same applies to bouquets in buckets and also to bouquets in a sales display. Don’t forget that only a few bad bouquets in a display 95% full of beautiful flowers can bring the quality of the entire display down to a mediocre level.
