Care tips

We care for our roses on a daily basis. The conditions and care during transport and storage have a great influence on the vase life of the roses. Please see our tips and recommendations below.

Tips for the exporter and trader

  • The optimal temperature during transport and storage is between 2 and 5 degrees Celsius. Be sure that the temperature does not go below 2 degrees as roses are not able to withstand frost.
  • Humidity should not exceed 90% during transport and storage.
  • Be sure the roses are not exposed to wind (drafts) and direct sunlight.
  • Keep and transport the roses in water (with food) for the best results.
  • Use clean containers.
  • Do not transport roses with fruit – the ethylene will cause the roses to rapidly age.

Tips for the customer

  • After purchasing your roses, put them in water as soon as possible.
  • Use a clean vase with tap water and cut flower food.
  • Remove the leaves from the part of the stem that is under water.
  • Do not remove the thorns and try to do as little damage to the stem as possible in order to prevent bacteria growth.
  • Cut the base of the stem (2 to 3cm) diagonally with a sharp knife.
  • Keep the roses away from drafts, direct sunlight, heat sources or fruit as these factors can shorten the life of the roses.
  • Make sure that the roses have enough water and change the water if it becomes cloudy.
