Coming up roses
Flower trends come and go but cut roses are always a classic choice. Here we have featured ‘Wedding Rose’ which is a locally grown flower specifically cultivated for cut stems. We have arranged the roses with astilbe, bay leaves and phalaenopsis orchids. When arranging rose stems, remove three-quarters of the foliage and trim the stem on an angle, being careful of the thorns. Roses will last for 5-7 days if stems are re-cut every second day and water is changed daily.
