WHAT YOU MUST DO
- Before putting the flowers in water, make a diagonal cut about 1 or 2 inches from the bottom of each stem, as shown in the photo.
- Strip the leaves from the stem up to the height of your vase; the foliage should never come into contact with the water. Contrary to popular belief, the water should make contact only with the stem, not the leaves.
- The water level in the vase should be as high as possible, from the bottom of the stems and according to the size of the vase. You can add a small amount of sugar as food.
- If possible mix a floral preservative into the water.
- Do not put the rose arrangement in a sunny place. Preferably, put the roses in a cool place with some shade.
- Add some more water depending on the rose consumption, or change the water completely as desired. Try and keep the water level consistent until the roses reach their end.
