Com­ing up roses

Your Home and Garden - - Your Garden -

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.
