CARE AND HANDLING

Care & Handling

  • Bulk roses are shipped directly from flower farms in South America without water tubes

  • Before shipping your flowers, they are prepared for their journey with the proper hydration methods required.

  • Upon arrival, remove flowers from box by cutting any straps located on the outside and inside of the box

  • Do not remove the corrugated cardboard sleeve or the rubber bands holding the flowers together in a bunch

  • Fill a clean container with at least 4" of fresh, cool water and add the flower food if provided

  • Cut stems at an angle at least ½ inch or more and remove any leaves that fall below the water line (not removing will cause bacteria to form and shorten the life of the roses)

  • Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well.

  • Roses may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate; leave the corrugated cardboard around the blooms for a minimum of 3–4 hours to allow for sufficient hydration

  • In some cases, there may be some discolored outer guard petals that are purposely left on to protect the roses during shipping

  • It is not uncommon to remove an average of 5–10 petals per bloom; this will not damage the flower

  • Cut the stems and change the water every 48 hours for optimal life

  • Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
     

  • Care Instructions:
     

  • Garden roses are shipped directly from flower farms in South America without water tubes. Before shipping your flowers, they are prepared for their journey with proper hydration methods. If your flowers appear sleepy and thirsty after their journey, it is absolutely NORMAL. Just follow these simple steps and the flowers will bloom beautifully.
     

  • Upon arrival, remove flowers from box by cutting any straps located on the outside and inside of the box.

  •  Do not remove the corrugated cardboard sleeve or the rubber bands holding the flowers together in a bunch.

  • Fill clean containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water.

  • Remove any leaves that fall below the water line. Not removing the leaves may cause bacteria to form and shorten the Rose's life.

  • Using sharp scissors or a knife, cut stems diagonally approximately one inch under running water if possible.

  •  Immediately after cutting, place stems in the prepared containers.

  • Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Roses may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate. Leave the corrugated cardboard around the blooms for a minimum of 3 - 4 hours. This will allow the roses sufficient time to hydrate properly.

  •  Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.

  • To keep the roses fresh:

  • Please maintain an adequate amount of water in the container at all times. The flowers will drink a large amount of water especially upon arrival as they have been travelling some time without water.

  • Change the water every 48 hours or when the water becomes cloudy.

  •  roses are shipped with guard petals in order to protect the blooms during shipping. 

  • After your roses have hydrated, remove the protective packaging and then any brown or discolored guard petals if needed. It is not uncommon to remove an average of 5 to 10 petals per bloom and will not damage the flower.

  • Remember that exposing roses to warmer environments will help the flower bloom but excessive heat will hurt them. Storing your roses in a cooler environment will slow down the opening process but too cold such as a freezer will burn the roses.

  •  roses are shipped in bud form. Once the Rose is hydrated, the bloom will open to a much larger size.

Petals Care:
 

  •  Petals are shipped directly from our farms

  • Before shipping your flowers, we prepare them for their journey with proper hydration methods

  • Unpack the box by taking all the bags out

  • Leave petals in the bags until use

  • If condensation occurs, open the bags and wipe the condensation off with a paper towel

  • Place the bags in a cool dry place or in the refrigerator if the event is not the same day

  • Ensure that the petals do not freeze as they will be damaged

  • Do not place petals in direct sunlight.

Care Instructions:
 

Open your box of roses immediately; the roses may appear limp or dehydrated upon arrival but will recover if you follow the care and handling instructions below/n

Prepare a clean container and fill with water.

Cut stems at an angle at least 1/2" or more. Doing this under water is best because this will eliminate the oxygen bubble in the stem which restricts the uptake of water to the bloom.

·  Place your flowers in the prepared container/n

 Cut the stems and change the water every 2 to 3 days for optimal life. Remember to make sure you have plenty of water for the roses as they tend to drink a lot of water/n

Do not place flowers in direct sunlight/heat as it will damage the flower and diminish the life of the flower/n

Enjoy your flowers/n.
