  • Hints And Tips For Rose Care

    Botanical Name: Rosa Hybrida

    Common Name : Rose

    What to Look for :

    * Flowers with strong stems to support blooms

    * Slightly open buds, this will vary between varieties, but in general if given the correct preservative treatments then the vase life will be better than those slightly open rather than tight in bud.

    What to Do :

    * The vase life of a rose is highly dependant on the rose being kept well hydrated at all times

    * Recut the stems under water on an angle with sharp secateurs or a knife.

    * Use a commercial preservative in the water

    * Remove all leaves below the water line

    What to avoid :

    * Do not place in sun or draughts

    * Do not place on top of television
