Even when handled with great care, the heads of your beautiful roses could drop over within a few days of receiving a bouquet.
It’s not that the flowers are old. Rather, it’s likely that an air bubble got stuck in the stem, preventing water from getting in.
With these easy steps, you can bring the roses back to a robust state:
1. Fill a sink with 2 inches of water;
2. Remove the roses from their vase and submerge the stems in water;
3. While they are submerged, cut the stems (scissors are fine) approximately 2 inches from the bottom. A diagonal cut is best as it provides the most surface area for water to get in;
4. Allow the stems to soak in the water for an hour.
When you place the roses back in the vase, they should be in good shape once again. Be sure to add the plant food that your florist should have provided.
