No Pics but we use two methods.
Firstly we use soft drink trays were bottles can
fit in smugly. We then put a bottle in every alternative space and place
the bloom stems in these, sometimes we have to wedge the bloom upright
with paper/stem etc.
Alternatively we use large plastic vases which
have removable bases. We then put quite a lot of blooms in these and
separate them with scrunched up newspaper. We then sit the vase in a hollow
concrete block for transport.
Don't do what one local person did once. They
put the blooms in wide necked bottles and then to keep the blooms in
place they filled the bottles with damp sand. During transport the sand settled
and compacted. On arrival, it apparently had the consistency of concrete.

Subject: [iris-photos] Various load
Thanks to all that have sent in ideas. Every little bit
I just remembered I have some pixs of various loads. At least
for fair, it's just down the road a bit.
Does anyone else have pixs of how they pack.??
The retreat load was the hardest to pack, b/c long trip, and had to
protect from sun. At least it wasn't for a contest
The message is ready to be sent with the following file or link
