Roses: Tips to make them last longer

Red is not the only color of rose that people can send – it depends on what message one is trying to convey. Jon Gerych of Gerych’s Graziella in Birmingham says it’s absolutely okay to give roses other than red to someone you love, respect, or admire.
“Red roses are typically sent to someone you love, pink roses are sent to those you admire or someone who brings you joy, yellow roses are given in friendship, white roses symbolize innocence and purity and are used a lot at weddings, orange roses mean passion and excitement, and lavender roses are a perfect symbol of enchantment.”
Gerych says that knowing a few tricks for caring for roses can keep them vibrant longer.
·        Keep them in a place with a constant temperature and out of sunlight
·        Give them a fresh cut every day
·        Change the water frequently
·        Put an aspirin in with the water, or even add some 7 UP to the water

Gerych’s offers flowers and floral arrangements, gifts, innovative events, and party rentals. Gerych’s Graziella is at 2005 Cole Street in Birmingham and also at 713 Silver Lake Road in Fenton. Call 248/723-5650.
