Valentine’s Day: Caring for Long-Stemmed Roses

A Red, Red, Rose

O, My Luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June:
O, My Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune!

Robert Burns

Valentine’s Day: Caring for Long-Stemmed Roses

Who doesn't love a dozen long-stemmed roses for Valentine's Day? Nothing says, "I love you," like a bunch of red beauties, at least according to floral tradition. Of course, pink, white, yellow or other roses customarily carry different shades of meanings. Whatever the color and message, roses are the perennial favorite for Valentine's Day or any holiday.

Receiving Long-Stemmed Roses

If you are fortunate enough to receive a parcel of long-stemmed, fresh-cut roses, be sure to hold them in a gentle embrace. Think of Miss America or Miss Universe, as she carries her victory roses cradled in her arms. This prevents the flowers from waving about and breaking. Treat your fresh-cut flowers with kindness, and they will last a lot longer!

Arranging Long-Stemmed Roses

Many rose recipients mistakenly attempt to trim their long-stemmed flowers one at a time and then arrange them in a vase. Don't do it!

Here's an easier and more artistic way to prepare your lovely roses for display. This will protect your fresh-cut flowers from breaking and virtually guarantee floral arranging success every time.
