Caring for your Roses

1. Your red roses will be very thirsty when they arrive, therefore it is important you put them in a vase with fresh water as soon as possible.
2. Be careful when unwrapping the roses from their packaging, thorns will be present.
3. Cut approximately 3cm off from the bottom of each stem at a 45degree angle. This will increase the surface area of the base of the stem and the roses will be able to stay hydrated easily.
4. Do not add ice cold water to the roses, luke warm water is recommended and you should fill the vase to the necks of the roses to ensure they remain in good condition.
5. Always add the flower food you receive with red roses, as this will prelong their life.
6. Once the water becomes murky, replace it and re cut the stems again.
7. If you look after your 12 red roses correctly, they should last well over a week and keep your partner happy!
