Fill a vase with water and allow it to come to room temperature. If you are using floral foam, let it soak until it is fully saturated and sinks to the bottom.
Add a packet of flower food to extend bloom life. If you don’t have flower food, dissolve half a teaspoon of sugar, a teaspoon of lemon juice, and a few drops of bleach in 4 cups of water to create a home-made substitute.
Slant cut the stems to the desired length, cutting just above one of the nodes on the stem. Flower stems naturally begin to seal their ends, so cutting them helps the flower to take in fresh clean water and extends their vase life. The shorter the stem the more water will feed the bloom.
Remove any leaves that will be submerged as these will rot over time.
Arrange stems to your liking, varying the height and position. Add other flowers to the arrangement once all the roses are positioned.
Change the water if it starts looking cloudy, rinse the stems clean.
You may also want to recut the stems under water to help the flower uptake water – cut just above the next node on the stem.
