We are expanding our horizons with delivering flowers directly to you, a lot of you already met our South America stock but now we would love to introduce you to Hoek flowers - Africa Direct too. A place not just known for its safari and coastal drives but also for their flowers! Here at Hoek, we are so excited to start this new project. We’ve teamed up with around 80 of the best flower farms of South Africa, a country where flower growing is not just a business, but a passion!
Climate in South Africa
South Africa is based in the Southern Hemisphere and their climate is the best for growing flowers like Protea, Cape Greens, Banksia and Leucospermums. They can grow flowers that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, we might even have Peonies during our winters! How? While we might be pulling on our winter coats in Europe and North America, they're enjoying summer down there. This means they can supply you with some products pretty much year-round, sounds like a dream, right?
“We might even have Peonies during our winters!“
Assortment from South Africa
How to condition flowers from South Africa?
After such a long transport time your flowers crave a bit of attention. Handle them with care, give them fresh water with flower food and place them in a cool area. Change the water regularly and give them a good rest to revitalize. For more tips check out our reel ‘prep talk – exotics’ on Instagram.
Why buy flowers from South Africa direct?
Some of you are already familiar with our South America stock, but for the newbies among us, I will explain a few reasons why buying your flowers direct is a good option.
Green high five.
When you order from the direct stocks, the flowers will fly straight to your country, without making a pitstop at our HQ in Holland. This means we skip a few flights and rides; the earth is giving us a green high five!
Fresher and better prices.
The flowers are fresher because there are no detours so they come faster to your door, and the prices are also better because of this, how convenient is that!
Summer flowers in wintertime?
We get it, summer flowers are not without reason so bright and charming around that time of the year, but how amazing is it to not disappoint a bride asking for Peonies in wintertime?
Packed with love and care.
Our flowers are always packed with love and care but we would like to ensure you that it is the same for South Africa, we’ve teamed up with some of the best growers in South Africa. For them, growing flowers is a passion and that reflects on their flowers. We love it! Hopefully you will too!
