Garden Roses feature lush blooms filled with ruffled and whirled petals. They are perfect for romantic bouquets and centerpieces, and make a great substitute for the pricier Peony. Available in lots of gorgeous colors, our Garden Roses are now even more affordable and come is smaller and larger pack sizes, giving you more control!

Flower Care for Garden Roses:
First, don’t be concerned if your garden roses arrive looking like a standard rose! With a little hydration and bloom time, they will start to pop open into a full bloom! Like this…
Just follow these steps for proper care…
- Remove flowers from box by cutting any straps. Our Garden Roses are shipped in special packaging that may or may not include water boxes, water tubes or wet foam. No matter the packaging, your Garden Roses have been properly prepared for shipping. Remove any of this special packaging including any plastic wrapping so as not to create condensation which will cause rotting, but do NOT remove the cardboard sleeve or the rubber bands holding the flowers together in a bunch.
- Fill containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water.
- Add floral food to prevent bacteria from forming in the water and to give added nutrients to the Roses. If you do not have flower food, it can be purchased at any local florist.
- Remove any leaves that fall below the water line. Not removing the leaves may cause bacteria to form and shorten the Rose’s life.
- Using sharp scissors or a knife, cut the stems diagonally under running water approximately one inch from each stem’s bottom edge.
- Immediately after cutting, place the stems in the prepared water.
- Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Garden Roses may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate. Leave the plastic or cardboard packaging around the blooms for a minimum of 4 hours. This will allow the Roses sufficient time to hydrate properly.
- Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
- To keep the Garden Roses fresh, change the water every 24 to 48 hours or when the water becomes cloudy. Assure that your flowers have sufficient water. The flowers will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival.
Enjoy your Garden Roses! 🙂
