Florists staging

Previous - Next

1985. The stage for florists flowers, when portable, is commonly a series of narrow shelves, rising in gradation one above the other, and supported by a frame and posts, so as to be 3 or 3.5 feet from the ground at the lowest shelf. These shelves are enclosed, generally, on three sides by boards or canvas, and on the fourth side by glass doors. This stage, when in use, is placed so that the glazed side may front the morning sun, or the north, in order that the colours of auriculas, carnations, &c., may not be impaired by it.
