How to care for your delivery of roses
When it comes to making sure that your roses last as long as possible, there are a few vital ways of taking care of them:
Changing the water regularly is a must, ideally once a day.
Cut your stems at a 45-degree angle to allow your rose to absorb more water.
Always remember to remove foliage below the water line.
Keep in a cool area away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and drafts.
Can you send roses to a friend?
Yes! Although traditionally associated with romantic occasions such as Valentine's Day and anniversaries, roses make a great flower to show your affection to any kind of loved one.
