Transporting the Rose
Depending on how far from the Rose Show location you live, will determine the manner in which you transport your roses. And there are many ways to do this. It is a personal preference, but whichever way you choose, you will want to transport them carefully so they will not fall, or bump into each other. They need to stay cool, and out of the hot sun’s rays. It goes without saying that the roses must stay in water.
So, find a system that works for you. Depending on how many roses you are planning to show, a cardboard box with dividers could be helpful. A six-pack cardboard carrying case, used for soda bottles, works well too. If the rose blooms are large then possibly only three roses would fit in a six-pack carrying container. You do not want the blooms bumping into each other. Use vases you already have, or use soda or water bottles. Place your box or boxes securely on the floor or back of the minivan or SUV. You do not want them to move around during travel.
