Our roses are ultra fresh roses and to enjoy your fresh roses for an extra long time, we have listed some care tips for fresh roses for you. Read all about taking care of your fresh roses here.
Always use a clean glass vase for your fresh roses.
There are a lot of beautiful pottery vases available. Very pretty, but not good for your roses. Earthenware is not smooth, which means that bacteria can accumulate on the inside of the vase. This can be due to residual water, soap or bacteria from your previous bouquet of flowers. It is best for your roses to use an (acrylic) glass vase. Clean it well with, for example, a little bleach to ensure that no residual bacteria remain in the vase.
- Take a good look at the space the roses get in the vase. They do need enough space to open!
- Not a fan of glass, because you're afraid of shards in your home? Kids, pets, etc. running around? Then take a look at an acrylic vase. These will not crack and shatter to the ground when knocked over!
Cut the stems of your fresh roses diagonally with sharp rose scissors or a knife.
An angle of 45 degrees is recommended, because then the roses can drink enough water. It is important to use sharp rose scissors or a knife, as a blunt knife or scissors can pinch the capillaries in the rose stem. When this happens, the rose cannot drink enough water and will soon hang its head.
Remove the leaves from the stem that will hang in the water
The leaves in the water will ensure that the roses stay beautiful for less time. Because of bacteria and because the water will then go to the leaves instead of to the rose and that is the most important thing. That the rose can get enough water. That brings us to the next tip.
Make sure there is 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 2/3 of the vase. Make sure the water is clean so that no unnecessary bacteria get to your roses. It is important to put the roses in the vase as soon as possible after receipt, in order to recover from the journey.
Add the flower food that is included in the bag.
In addition to water, the roses also need rose food. In the envelope you received two bags of flower food. Use the first when you first put the roses in the vase. After a week you can use the second bag of flower food! Your roses need food 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 that you change the water in the vase. Remove the roses from the vase and clean the vase thoroughly. The bacteria that have accumulated in the vase must be removed from the vase. Fill the vase with new, clean water and add the second sachet of flower food. Rinse the stems of the roses to prevent them from carrying bacteria into the clean vase.
Cut the stems at an angle again with sharp rose scissors or a knife.
Cut about an inch or two off the stems at about a 45-degree angle. Cutting the stems again, in combination with the clean vase, the fresh water and the second bag of flower food, can ensure that your roses are in the vase even longer than you might be used to.
Keep your roses out of the sun, heating, drafts or heaters
Direct sunlight or the heat from the heating, the sun or a stove do not have a good effect on the roses. The roses can't handle this very well. As a result, the roses evaporate more moisture, while they really need it. As a result, the roses will quickly hang their heads and become limp.
Keep your roses away from fruit.
Fruit emits an ethylene gas, this happens because fruit also ages and ripens as time goes on. There's nothing to this to do, but the roses quickly age and limp. It is therefore best to move your fruit basket or your vase to keep them away from each other.
Do not unnecessarily remove the thorns from the roses.
If this is not necessary, we do not recommend removing the thorns from the roses. It can happen that the rose suffers a “wound” as a result. Bacteria accumulate in this and the roses will soon be able to hang their heads. Do you prefer roses without thorns? Then take a look at our thornless roses.
Remove faded roses from the bouquet
It can of course happen that some roses have finished flowering earlier than the rest. Then remove it from the bouquet. First of all, this does not look nice, 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 and that is of course a shame.
Place the roses in a cool place at night
Roses stay freshest if they can be left in a cool place. To allow the roses to recover at night, it is best to place them in a cool but not humid place.
Do roses go limp quickly?
Didn't they have water right away and do the roses go limp quickly? We have one last tip for you that could help you with this. 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 humid place. This way you give your roses the best chance to still bloom beautifully!
