Fun Flower Facts
When cutting floral stems, is it best to use scissors or a knife?
The most important thing to remember is that you want the cut to be clean. We always recommend a sharp knife but sometimes sharp scissors can provide just as sharp of a cut. If the scissors are too dull, the stem can get crimped, causing the passageway to be blocked.
Rose Care tips:
If your roses arrived in plastic water tubes, remove them before arranging. Remove any leaves that will be under water, taking care not to cut through or scrape the green bark. Recut stems by removing 1-2 inches with a sharp knife. Immediately after cutting, place roses in a clean, deep vase of water containing a flower food packet(if available). Check the flower food solution daily and make sure to keep it full, clean, and fresh. If the solution becomes cloudy, replace it entirely. Keep your roses in a cool place, out of direct sun and drafts.
