Always use a clean glass vase for your fresh roses.
There are a lot of beautiful vases available made of earthenware. Very pretty, but not good for your roses. Earthenware is not smooth, so bacteria can build up on the inside of the vase. This can be due to residual water, soap or bacteria from your previous bouquet of flowers. The best thing for your roses is to use an (acrylic) glass vase. Clean it well with, for instance, a little bleach to make sure no residual bacteria remain in the vase.
- Look carefully at the space the roses get in the vase. After all, they do need enough space to come open!
- Not a fan of glass because you are afraid of shards in the house? Kids running around, pets etc.? Then take a look at an acrylic vase. These won't crack and fall to the ground in shards when knocked over!
Cut the stems of your fresh roses at an angle with sharp rose scissors or knife.
A 45-degree angle is recommended as this will allow the roses to drink enough water. It is important to use sharp rose scissors or knife, because a blunt knife or scissors can pinch the capillaries in the rose stem. When this happens, the rose cannot drink enough water and they will quickly drop their heads.
Remove the leaves from the stem that end up in the water
Leaves in the water will reduce the longevity of roses. Because of bacteria and because the water will then go to the leaves instead of to the rose, which is the most important thing. That the rose can get enough water. Which brings us to the next tip.
Provide enough clean water in the vase
Our fresh roses drink a lot of water. It is therefore important that the roses have enough water in the vase. The most commonly given tip for filling the vase with water is to fill the vase to half or to 2/3 of the vase. Make sure the water is clean so no unnecessary bacteria gets to your roses. It is important to put the roses in the vase as soon as possible after receiving them, to recover from the trip.
Add the flower food included in the bag.
Besides water, the roses also need rose food. In the envelope, you have received two bags of flower food. Use the first one when you first put the roses in the vase. After a week you can use the second bag of flower food! Your roses will then need nutrients again to stay strong and beautiful!
Change the water and add the second flower food.
You can top up the water during the week if your roses drink a lot of water. After a week, we recommend changing the water in the vase. Remove the roses from the vase and clean the vase thoroughly again. The bacteria that have accumulated in the vase need to get out again. Fill the vase with new, clean water and add the second bag of flower food. Rinse the stems of the roses briefly to avoid carrying bacteria into the clean vase.
Cut the stems at an angle again with sharp rose scissors or a knife.
Cut about 2 or 3 cm off the stems at an angle of about 45 degrees. Cutting the stems again, combined with the clean vase, fresh water and the second bag of flower food, can ensure that your roses stay in the vase even longer than you might be used to.
Keep your roses out of the sun, heating, draughts or stove
Direct sunlight or the heat from heating, sun or a stove do not have a good effect on roses. The roses can withstand this very badly. The roses evaporate more moisture, which they desperately need. The roses will soon droop and go limp.
Keep your roses away from fruit.
Fruit emits an etylene gas, this happens because fruit also ages and ripens as time goes by. There is nothing you can do about this, but roses age and limp quickly. So it's best to move your fruit basket or your vase to keep them away from each other.
Don't unnecessarily remove thorns from roses.
When not necessary, we don't recommend removing the thorns from roses. This may cause a "wound" in the rose. Bacteria will accumulate in this wound and the roses will soon lose their heads. Do you prefer roses without thorns? Then take a look at our thornless roses.
Remove spent roses from the bouquet
It can of course happen that some roses have finished flowering earlier than the rest. Remove these from the bouquet. First of all, this does not look pretty, but what is even more annoying is that these roses spread bacteria in the vase to the other roses. This can also affect the other roses. When that happens, you can throw away all the roses, which is of course a shame.
Put the roses in a cool place at night
Roses stay freshest when they can stay in a cool place. To allow roses to recover overnight, it's best to put them in a cool but not damp place.
Roses go limp quickly?
Have they not been watered immediately and do the roses start drooping quickly? We have one last tip for you that might help. Roll up your roses tightly in (newspaper) paper. Put them in cold water in a clean vase and leave them overnight in a cool but not damp place. This will give your roses the best chance to bloom!
