Cut Roses

Post by neptune on 9th May 2011, 17:08

I did a search on this subject , but it seems that there is not dedicated topic to this subject...

I'm looking for a method that will preserve the cut roses for a long time in a vase before they become blown

Cut the bottom of the stems under the vase water and add an Aspro Clear. At the first sign of water discolouration change the water and add another Aspro Clear
You can also cut another 1/2" off the bottom of the stems under the vase water.

Hope this helps.

Neptune , an other good combo is 1/2 tsp bleach and a dessert spoon of sugar, the bleach kills the bugs in the water

The only thing that will stop a bloom opening up fully blown is the cool room, thats how florists keep their blooms in such good nick

I've got a small bar fridge in the garage I use sometimes for roses. You can buy a second hand one for next to nothing. You can keep roses (with bud just barely opening) for nearly 2 weeks in the fridge at the mildest temp. If they are brought out into a cool unheated place they might be OK. Depends on the variety. Worth a try, and good luck!

The best knowledgeable grower in Glenorie who supplies nearly all Sydney and has a truck load going to USA weekly gave me the Aspro trick.
He is known in the district as the "Godfather" and of corse has the largest house in the district. Is it a good system or another way of selling more roses?

Will be interesting to see how all the methods work out

Neptune more information required,
When is the show
How far from home
How many stems are trying to store/take
How are they going to be transported.
Available ice for transport of some varieties.
Other things to look at, cool storeage IE, anyone in your area with coolrooms, depending on temps, umbrellas/sheets over roses that might be effected by temp/heat/cold.
Classes you are entering, meaning, what stage of bloom required. Do you have to nominate prior to going or can you enter on the day dependant on the blooms you have
Do you know the style of vase, if so practice on some spent stems of what you want.
These are some of the things that come to mind from me.

I hope this help Dave

I forgot to add, that I attended and popped a few entries into the Vic Rose shows and was advise that cut your blooms as late in the day before or get up at sparrows fart and do same and straight into the solution your showing your roses and also spray foliage, this was from Dr B Chapman, his advise was well taken on as he gave me lots of tips and a bit of help for my next showing, and I was rewards with a few prizes. Since gave it all up TOO stressful .

Ok...we worked out that blooms and reblooms take between 39 and 50 days depending on rose, weather etc......

So now a new thought has come up....if I come back from showing date about 100days and prune...that would mean that the bushes will go thru a bloom and then a re-bloom.......now my thought is ....which will throw up the best blooms ......the first after a major prune or the second , because the plant has had a chance to recoup itself
