How To Properly Store Roses After Harvest

The harvested flowers should be put in warm water and kept in 4-5 degrees of temperature. If the roses must be kept for around two weeks, they can be kept in -1 to 1 degrees, but these roses shouldn’t be put in water, instead they should be kept in air and moisture proof boxes. When retrieving the roses from storage, stems should be cut a bit and they should be put in hot water, around 27 to 30 degrees.

    when you talk of temperature above are you referring to 4-5C or Farenheit and -1-1C or F…?
