TIP 2: I too made sure my roses were secured from heavy wind. I had pots and branches broken before. Normally, tying the canes to a support or fence helps to avoid these devastating incidents.
Saving the blooms
What were saved - my SN Almost Lover and the SN Jingga Irisa blooms. Some blooms were already in full blown (kembang masak) and rain can destroy the petals in seconds.
|SN Jingga Irisa|
|SN Almost Lover|
|A bouquet of roses, in Bahasa Malaysia is "Jambangan bunga ros / jambangan bunga mawar"|
|Hybrid tea is always considered for cut roses. I shouldn't overlook floribunda and other spray roses the next time I do a bouquet and get creative with colors, foliages and vases.|
|Once in a while, it's refreshing to enjoy roses indoor.|
|By adding the pill or the cut flower/foral preservative (Penahan Keratan Bunga),|
the blooms although aged; can last up to 3 days before petals begin to drop.
For me, professional preservative always gives the best result compared to home-made.
Last but not least - Happy New Year! to all my readers out there. May you have lots of blooms in your garden too.
