How to Care Your Loved Roses after Valwentine

Caring your precious Valentine Fresh Rose Petals

  • With rose petal you want to avoid two things: (1) Moisture and (2) Freezing Temperatures.
  • Around 1000 petals are packed in a bag, so be careful in handling them. To the One end of the bag, fold a paper towel in half, and slide it inside the bag between the bag and the rose petals. Flip the bag over and repeat the process. The paper towels will catch any condensation which may form.
  • Keep the roses in a refrigetrator, but do not place in the area where there is more amount of freezing.
  • If the rose petals look as if they are drying out, remove them from the refrigerator and store them in a cool spot out of sunlight and away from heat in the box they came in.

This way you can enjoy the beauty and praise the almighty for his Astounding Creations.
