How to keep cut roses fresh
These gorgeous ‘Mimi Eden’ and ‘Dinara’ spray roses are amongst Aquarelle’s favourites. As the flowers are harvested, this bouquet is composed using one or two of these varieties, both chosen for their excellent vase life.
These fresh flowers will travel in a non-spill vase designed especially by Aquarelle to keep the stems in water at all times during transport.
The following care tips will help your recipient enjoy this bouquet for as long as possible:
- Choose a suitable vase, with an opening of no more than 8cm in diameter.
- Trim the stems according to the height of the vase, as the beauty of your arrangement will depend on the length of the flowers.
- Use the sachet of plant food provided, mixing it with one litre of water. You can then save any excess to top up the vase over the following week.
The roses are cut at the ideal stage of maturity. Remember to remove any dead heads as your bouquet develops.
After 4 days, trim the stems again and change the water completely.
