Caring for your Valentine Roses

As I'm sure you know, thousands of roses are sold every year on Valentines Day. Here are a few tips on taking care of them.

  • Valentine's DayIf your roses arrived in plastic water tubes, remove them before arranging.
  • Remove any leaves that will be under water, taking care not to cut through or scrape the green bark.
  • Recut stems by removing 1-2 inches with a sharp knife.
  • Immediately after cutting, place roses in a clean, deep vase of water containing a flower food provided by your florist.
  • Check the flower food solution daily and make sure to keep it full, clean, and fresh. If the solution becomes cloudy, replace it entirely.
  • Keep your roses in a cool place, out of direct sun and drafts.
