Maximise Vase Life

Roses 2 Go (Pty) Ltd t/a A Dozen Roses recommends the following steps to ensure you get the most enjoyment out the hydroponic roses brought from us. The following method will extend the vase life and thus allow the roses to bloom for longer and to be truly appreciated. We believe in quality and freshness and we GUARANTEE our product for 7 days - but you must give the roses half a chance!

  1. Fill a clean vase (glass or otherwise) with fresh tap water.
  2. Empty the contents of the Chrysal (provided with all bunches of roses purchased from our rose outlets) flower food into the water and allow it to dissolve.
  3. Re-cut the rose stems about 1 - 2 cm from the bottom of the stem.
  4. Place the stems directly into the water.
  5. Remove any foliage that is beneath the water line.
  6. Place the vase in a cool place - not in direct sunlight or beside a fireplace or heater or air conditioner or in a draft - also not near fruit as the ethylene emitted by fruit hastens the ripening of roses and shortens their vase life.
  7. Replacing the water every 4/5 days would be beneficial and re-cutting the bottom of the stems again may assist too but is not always necessary.
  8. Sit back and enjoy your ROSES - and have a ROSEY DAY!
