Com­ing up roses

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Fabulous Flowers -

Want as many flow­ers as pos­si­ble? Dead­head for more blooms. Snip off with­ered heads with se­ca­teurs to en­cour­age your plant to pro­duce more flow­ers in­stead of seeds. For vase dis­plays, cut roses in the morn­ing. Sit in a bucket of warm wa­ter, re­move leaves be­low the wa­ter line and cut the stems to length on an an­gle. After an hour, trans­fer to a vase filled with warm wa­ter and plant food.
