Upper Poppleton, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/17/2016 -- A recent BBC documentary The World's Biggest Flower Market explored behind the scenes of the flower bouquet industry and revealed where many of the bouquets found in supermarkets come from. From farms in Kenya, to a huge auction in the Netherlands – it was something in which many viewers definitely found incredible.

In Kenya the majority of flowers that we purchase in the UK are grown in hydroponic tunnels where they are watered three times a day before being cut. They then undergo a plethora of treatments involving antibacterial solutions, clever temperature controlling and more. After this, they start their journey across the world, first of all stopping off to be taken to auction and then to their final destination.

A spokesperson from hydroponic equipment supplier Hydroponica was keen to comment on the show saying, "The documentary was an excellence watch and really highlighted the demand for flower bouquets in the UK. Who knew that this year's Valentine's period - 25 million stems went through the airport each day? It really showed the incredibleness of hydroponic growing too, something in which we promote as much as we can."
