A bouquet of roses is a great gift or decoration for your home. It is important to know how to properly care for it to keep the roses fresh and beautiful. Regardless of the season, a bouquet needs special attention. Let's take a look at what kind of care a bouquet of roses needs at different times of the year.

Caring for a bouquet of roses in the summer:

1. Placement of the bouquet: In summer, roses need coolness, so it is important to place bouquet in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Avoid placing the bouquet near heating appliances or heat sources.

2. Cut the stems: Before placing the bouquet in a vase, cut the stems at an angle to ensure better water absorption. Use a sharp knife or hot water to cut the tips of the stems.

3. Water: Use cool water for the rose bouquet, close to room temperature. Add sachets of preservatives for cut flowers that will keep the roses fresh and nutrients to nourish them. Change the water periodically and wash the vase to prevent the growth of bacteria.

4. Avoid cold air: Use caution not to place the bouquet in a direct stream of cold air from an air conditioner or fan, as this can cause the flowers to dry out.

Caring for a bouquet of roses in winter:

1. Warm water: In winter, it is recommended to use warm water for cut roses. This will help reduce the shock of a sudden transition to a cold environment.

2. Watering: Periodically moisten the stems of the roses of the cut bouquet to prevent them from drying out. Use a spray bottle or a wet cloth to moisten the flowers.

3. Warm location: Place the bouquet in a warm place, away from direct jets of cold air or cold surfaces.

Height and shape of the vase: 

It is recommended to choose a vase with a tall neck and sufficient depth for a bouquet of roses, so that the rose stems fit completely and do not bend. It is important for the vase to be stable and not topple over when holding a bouquet with long stems.

Material of the vase: Vases for rose bouquets can be made of various materials, such as glass, ceramic, or plastic. Each material has its own advantages and style, so the choice depends on your preferences and interior design.

Color of the vase: The color of the vase also matters when selecting one for a bouquet of roses. Transparent or neutral colors are often used to not compete with the beauty of the roses and emphasize their naturalness. However, you can also choose a vase that complements the color of the roses or creates an interesting contrast.

How much water to pour in the vase for cut roses:

The proper amount of water in the vase is crucial for the longevity of roses. For a bouquet of roses, it is recommended to pour approximately ⅔ of the stem length. It is important to regularly check the water level and refill it to maintain it at the desired level.

In general, to care for a bouquet of roses in summer and winter, it is important to ensure the correct location, use of cool or warm water, stem cutting, and watering. A suitable vase also plays an important role in preserving the freshness and beauty of roses.

     Water and preservative sachets: Provide the bouquet with enough clean, cool water. When cutting rose stems, add preservative sachets for cut flowers to the water. This will keep the roses fresh and help them last longer.

     Cutting the stems: Before placing the bouquet in a vase, cut the tips of the stems at an angle. This will allow for better absorption of water and nutrients. Use a sharp knife or hot water to cut the stems without splitting.

     Avoid direct sunlight: Roses do not like direct sunlight, especially during the hot hours of the day. Place the bouquet in a place out of direct sunlight to avoid overheating and drying out the flowers.

     Air temperature: Bouquets with roses feel best in cool temperatures. The ideal temperature for roses is between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius. Avoid placing the bouquet next to heating appliances or a refrigerator, as sudden changes in temperature can negatively affect roses.

     Avoid cold air: Although roses love coolness, they do not tolerate direct jets of cold air. Avoid placing the bouquet next to open windows or air conditioners, as this can cause the flowers to dry out and damage.

     Air humidity: It is better to store bouquets with roses in a moderately humid environment. Use a humidifier or water spray in the room, especially during periods of low humidity, to avoid drying out the flowers.

Where is the best place to put a bouquet of roses in an apartment?
