Caring for Cut Roses

Caring for Cut Roses Follow these simple steps to get the maximum vase life and enjoyment from your fresh cut roses: Hydration, hydration, hydration!  Whether you receive cut roses from us or buy them yourself, get them into water as soon as possible. Even if you don’t have time to arrange them in the desired vase right away, it's important to place them into some water source until you can get to them. Use warm water.  Prepare the vase first by cleaning it thoroughly. Then, fill it ¾ full with lukewarm water. Warm water can be absorbed by the flower with greater ease than cold water, allowing the water and nutrients to travel up to the bloom as quickly as possible.  Eliminate sources of bacteria in the water.  Before placing the flowers into the water, remove any foliage that would fall below the water line.  Foliage in the water causes bacteria to grow which will shorten the vase life of the flower.
