Research reveals simple trick to prolong vase life

Breeding company Interplant Roses, recently investigated the impact that the cut stage of spray roses has on the flowers vase life. By running these tests and sharing the results, Interplant Roses wants to improve florists’ understanding and experience and consumer perception of spray roses.

Their research department tested the vase life of spray roses when harvested at different cut stages. Results show when spray roses are harvested at cut stage 3 (CS3), vase life improves by up to 30%, in comparison with other cut stages. Furthermore, the flowers have a better opening and the percentage of drooping necks reduces considerably, provided that bacteria-free and clean water is being used. This finding is extremely important for the entire spray rose chain, from grower to consumer.
