Hi there, and welcome to this Vela Flower guide to getting the most out of your cut roses.
If you have drooping roses in a flower arrangement that are looking a little sorry for themselves, here is a surefire way to perk them back up again.
First of all, trim a small amount of the end of the stem at an angle.
Then, dip the end of the stem into boiling water for a couple of seconds.
And that's it! Your rose is now ready to go back into your arrangement.
If you're wondering what's just happening, you've just shocked the rose into cleaning out an air block that was stuck in its stem, and was preventing it from taking up fresh water.
