On receipt of your roses, remove the packaging with care.
Bouquet of Roses – remove 1” from the stem end with sharp knife and cut on the angle. Do not crush the stem – this prevents the rose taking up water. Stand in a deep vase filled with water with the flower food added.
Hand Tied bouquet of roses – do not unite your flowers, cut stems as above and stand in vase of water with flower food added. Change water in the vase at least twice a week. If the rose head flops, cut off the stem end as above and stand the rose in 1” of boiling water as soon as possible. Keep the roses away from draughts, fruit and radiators, the cooler the room the longer they will last. Contact your florist if you experience problems.
