USE THE BRASSICA FOR YOUR FALL BOUQUET
When creating a Fall bouquet, you probably wouldn’t immediately think of the Brassica? Yet, it is the perfect flower to use in your bouquet. The flower is large which means you don’t need to use many other flowers.
In general the Brassica used to be known as a flower that would start to smell when flourishing. Nowadays, the Brassica barely smells anymore due to further developments. Over the past couple of years there has been many developments for Brassicas. To be updated about these improvements, we received a presentation from a Brassica specialist of Takii Europe.
On the let you can see one of the most popular Brassica varieties Crane King and Crane Queen. On the right you can see Brassica specialist Sander from Takii Europe ready to give his presentation.
THE DISTINCTIVE SHAPES OF THE BRASSICA
The Brassica is available in different shapes and colours. The most popular Brassicas are red or white and slightly change their colour as temperatures drop. As one may look more like a Rose, another has a more extraordinary shape.

One of the first varieties were the Brassica Crane White and Brassica Crane Red. These varieties somewhat have the shape of a Rose, but with more petals.
