Tips to Care for Your Mother’s Day Roses

  • Use a clean vase
  • Flower food improves the life of your flowers significantly, and prevents the necks from bending
  • Cut a few centimeters off the stem at an angle to open the veins for absorbing water
  • Remove only the foliage at the bottom up to the point where the stem is in the water
  • Refill the water when it gets ‘cloudy’
  • Keep the vase away from vegetables and fruits, because the ethylene gas produced by these will damage your flowers
  • Take dying flowers out, so they won’t infect the others
  • Keep your flowers away from high temperatures and direct sunlight


You’re now ready to gift your moms the most spectacular roses for Mother’s Day!
