This is the time of year when fresh cut roses are being delivered to people in love! If you are a grateful recipient of some of these beautiful blooms here are a few tips to get them to last as long as possible.
First, always start with a clean vase and fresh water. Warm water is usually recommended as the roses will absorb the water more efficiently. Keeping the water clean is key to the longevity of roses so all green leaves should be removed if they are below the water. Bacteria will grow quickly and will drastically cut the life of your roses.
There are many methods you may have heard of to keep your roses fresher longer, anything from apple cider vinegar to sugar to a few drops of household bleach but the easiest way to to help your roses is to use the Fresh Flower Food packet supplied by your florist.
Make sure you do not leave your roses in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Both of these will cause your roses to fail quickly.
Last but not least, always check the water level in the vase. Roses not only drink from the bottom but from the entire stem so it’s beneficial to have the water level in your vase filled close to the top. If your rose heads start to droop it’s best to give the stem a fresh cut and submerge the stem back in the vase.
