do not put roses in the fridge… it can wilt them! where d you live? how the temperature outside? dark cool damp place may be best… The girl who did our flowers closed all of the blinds in her living room and put a humidifier on to keep them moist. some will wilt yes but thats what fillers are for :e)


good luck

Our florist/neighbor said the most important thing with keeping cut flowers fresh is to change the water EVERY DAY. Also, trim the stems (at an agle) when you change the water. Don’t put hot or cold water in there, keep it very room temp. And that food stuff never hurts. Hope This Helps, good luck!

Cut the stems immediately when you get home (cut off about 1") then put them in water.

Cool place is best.

In a day or 2, cut them again and put them in fresh water.
