Cutting For Arrangements

Cutting For Arrangements

One of the most enjoyable aspects of growing roses in your garden, is being able to cut a few blooms, and transporting their beauty and scent indoors to a vase. To get the best from your cut blooms, select flowers that are just opening and place immediately in a vase of water. Cut roses in the morning when they are at their freshest, well before the heat of the day.
