• Keep them well watered and in a cool and shady spot inside
  • should the rose heads wilt before the blooms open (this sometimes happens with the South African import roses due to shipping time), pop them in a full bucket  or sink of icy water up to their heads, to soak for 1/2 day and re-cut stems
  • re-cut stems cleanly with sharp scissors on a regular basis, at a 45 deg. angle to give the stem a maximum drinking surface
  • tulips will grow towards the light; cut the stems regularly and twist the vase. They are imported this time of year, so open quickly
  • change the water in your vase regularly, and add one drop of bleach to keep the water clean and some ice to cool them down.
  • ENJOY! 🙂
