Your Whole Blossoms Blizzard roses just arrived! Now they need to be hydrated and processed. Carefully unpack your roses. All bulk flowers look dry upon arrival and will need to be hydrated. It is important to give your wholesale flowers a couple of hours to hydrate and replenish. Depending on the variety purchased, some wholesale flowers may need 24 to 36 hours to hydrate and perk up.
CARE AND HANDLING FOR BULK ROSES
- Place your roses in clean, fresh, filtered water and add a tablespoon of sugar per bucket to help your wedding roses open faster. Carefully remove leaves, thorns or foliage that fall under the water level (without tearing the stem skin) to avoid the build-up of bacteria. Cut one inch off the end of the rose stem in a 45-degree angle (with a sharp knife NOT scissors) to allow water to be better absorbed through the stems. After cutting the stem at an angle, quickly place the roses in water since it only takes a minute for the stem to dry and seal up.
- Keep roses in a shaded, cool, relatively humid area (not cooler than 40F). Avoid placing roses near heat surfaces or environments. Roses must be in water at all times until they are ready to be used.
- Some growers do not remove guard (outer, worn) petals developed by roses as a preservation defense during delivery. If you receive roses with guard petals, remove them carefully before using the roses.
- Do not keep your roses in the refrigerator overnight since many fruit and vegetable gases can damage your bulk flowers.
- When storing your wholesale flowers, make sure that they are not moved from cold to hot or from hot to cold temperatures since drastic temperature changes will burn roses.
- My Wholesale Roses Are Not Opening. What Do I Do? If your flowers look too close and you would like to expedite the opening process, recut the stems, put the flowers in warm water and add one or two tablespoons of sugar to the water. Place the flowers near light without exposing them to direct sunlight.
- My Bulk Roses Are Too Open And I Am Days Away From May Event. What Do I Do? If you want to slowdown the opening of your flowers, put them in cold water without sugar and place them in a dark place. Preferably the coldest place possible. Not under 40 degrees.
