How long can roses last after you cut them?

    Usually about 5 days, BUT you can make them last longer if you:

    -cut them in the morning when the glucose content of the blossoms is high,

    -after cutting them outdoors, put them in a bucket of warm water,

    -once indoors, recut all stems and put them in warm water again (otherwise they absorb too much oxygen)

    Read the link below about a solution you can make to put your roses in that will help them last 7-10 days (basically, distilled water and lemon juice, but the temperature and pH are important as well.)

    One thing we used to do with our roses to help freshen them up if they needed to look good for pictures or a special occasion, was to put them in the fridge, or soak them in very cool water for about 5 minutes.  Make sure you also make fresh cuts in the stem, and change out the water frequently.  I also recently read that keeping boquets near ripening fruit can accelerate the wilting of flowers.
