Biggest myth about roses?

It could be considered a myth or maybe just a misunderstanding but everyone has stereotyped all prickly edges as thorns because they are sharp. Roses don’t have thorns they actually have prickles, these actually snap of quickly when applying a bit of pressure on them. Thorns and spines are much more harder to remove and they do cause a bit of pain when your fingers come into direct contact. Where gloves to avoid sharp pain.

3 Tips to lengthen the life of roses?

  1. Take the roses out of the package, cut 1 to 2cm of the stem diagonally that way when the stems hit the bottom of the vase there is still an area away from the vase that can conduct water up the stem.
  2. Remove the leafage from the middle of the rose downwards,  or for it to sit outside the neck of the vase. This allows for more oxygen to flow inside the vase and reduce bacteria in the water allowing for a longer rose life.
  3. Change the water every second day and place a couple of ice cubes during the day as this allows for the temperature in the vase to maintain itself cool.

Tips when buying  roses?

I believe you should shop around and find a supplier or a florist that you trust, as not all roses are freshly cut.

Choose the right colour of rose as you don’t want to send the wrong message. Different colours and shades have different meanings depending on the intention.
