Care and Handling:
Look at petals and feel for compact, ruffled texture of the carnations. They should be crisp and not soft. The blooms should have all petals vertical with maybe one or two starting to reflex. There should be absolutely no evidence of shattering, or the calyx splitting. Colors of carnations should be bright and clear. Leaves and stems should be erect, turgid and dark green. Stems should be cut cleanly and crisply and placed immediately into water. The flowers should be hydrated in a low sugar holding solution and preferably processed in the cooler.
