How to care for fresh-cut roses
  1. Always use clean tap water and if you have a flower preservative, add it to the water.
  2. Remove any foliage that may be submerged when you place the roses in the vase.
  3. Trim about 1cm off the end of each stem before arranging (this will eliminate the dried ends of the stem and allow the flowers to drink water).
  4. Once in a vase, try to keep in a cool area of your room for display.
  5. Avoid drafts and heat sources, including direct sunlight.
  6. As always, keep an eye on the water level of the vase as your roses will drink.
