Women love roses and when they are given by a person who the woman is in love with, the rose is given very high priority. Whatever is done to the rose though, it wilts and becomes brown and along with it breaks the heart of the lady a little. There are also many people who use the roses to adorn their rooms by keeping them in a vase. These people also would like to have the roses fresh in the vase for a longer time than usual. So how to keep roses fresh so that they are colorful and spread their fragrance for a longer time than they usually do?
There are many simple methods by which you can try to keep the roses fresh. The first and most simple step in keeping the roses fresh is to place the roses inside water as soon as possible. This is the most important thing to do. This will keep the roses fresh. The next thing that has to be done is to reduce the leaves from the stem on which the rose is present. This is because when the leaves are present, they become dry and also start the process of decay of the stem and the rose. To prevent this, the leaves are all ripped off the stem.
Another aspect that is involved in keeping the roses fresh is to trim the stem using a very sharp knife in a straight line, just above the area where the stem has started decaying. Each aspect said above is very important because if the sharp knife is not used, the cut will not be in a straight line. If the stem is not cut in a straight line, then the rose can decay faster. The stem has to be cut in this method every day to keep the rose fresh for a longer period of time.
Additives in the water like aspirin or even commercially available floral preservatives will help to keep the roses fresh in the water for a longer period of time than is usually possible. This is because the preservative will prevent the roses from decaying. Another aspect of keeping the roses fresh that has to be remembered is that the water in which the roses are kept should also be changed every day. This will also prevent the early decay of the roses. All these aspects are involved in keeping the rose fresh.
