WagnerÔÇÖs Rose Nursery™ is one of the largest and longest running rose nurseries in Australia.

In this collection, we've selected for you some rose varieties that we think will be ideal to make beautiful bouquets or flower compositions in a vase.

Follow Brian's precious tips on how to have cut roses lasting longer in a vase.

  • Make sure the soil around your rose plant is not too dry, if so water deeply 1 or 2 days before cutting flowers
  • Cut flowers preferably in the morning
  • Leave them in a 10L bucket filled with water up to the top, for half a day and in the shade
  • Add sugar to keep the flowers fresh longer (from 1/4 to 1/2 cup dissolved in 10L water)
  • Add 10 drops of bleach to stop bacteria from breeding
  • Also breaking or removing thorns from the roses will extend the life of the flowers
  • Then put the cut flowers in a vase filled with water up to the top
  • Top up the vase with water daily

Your cut flowers will last longer and will fill your home with their colours and fragrance.
