I like to cut these flowers from our backyard and put them on our kitchen table. I like it because I don't have to worry about falling leaves or petals and it lasts a long time.
- First fill up a vase with cold water.
- Cut the stems at an forty five degree angle so the bottom will not just sit in the water and rot later on.
- Trim any leaves that you submerge in the water.
- Put roses in warm water (not over 110 degrees) for 5 minutes then transfer to the vase with cold water.
- Put them in a cooler area so it will last longer. If you want it to bloom faster, then put them where there is a lot of sunlight.
- Trim the bottom of stems and change the water a week later.
