Rose Care Tips

How to buy a rose
Buy roses that are:
  • In the right stage of development
    AVOID:
    1. old roses -- many loosened petals; little bud left in the center;
    2. green roses -- (roses that have been cut too tight) -- no sepals have "fallen"; prone to bent neck; may never open
  • Conditioned in floral preservative


    Care after receiving a rose
  • Remove all foliage that will be in water.

  • Cut 1" (or slightly less) of stem under warm water. OR Cut stems and place immediately in a quick dip hydration solution. These techniques ensure that water not sir will enter the stem.

  • Place stems immediately into a floral preservative solution until ready to arrange.>

  • Use a floral preservative in the vase used for the design. If designing in floral foam, soak the floral foam in the floral preservative solution.

  • Always use clean containers and shears or knives.
