Take off the wrapping paper and any rubber bands.
2. prepare the stem
Strip the lower leaves or foliage from the stem. Foliage that is below the water line harbors
bacteria quickly, thus killing your flowers. If you are working with roses, remove the outside
guard petals so the flower can open more quickly.
Cut 1/4 inch diagonally off the end of the flower. You have about 15 seconds to put the flower into water without having to recut before the flower air locks.
3. put in a vase
Sit back and enjoy!
