Home Remedies for Reviving Long-Stem Red Roses
Have you ever carefully chosen your favorite flowers and arranged them in a beautiful bouquet, only to watch them wilt hours or days afterward? Make sure to keep your flowers in a cool spot as you travel home from the florist. If you choose to place your bouquet in a refrigerator while you unload groceries or find a vase, be sure to place them away from the fan or vent where the cold air enters your fridge. Fresh-cut flowers do not like extreme temperatures. You may be planning to keep your flowers wrapped until you can give them to your special someone, but it is best to unwrap the stems and place the bouquet in a vase of water.
And nothing is more disappointing than when the necks of those roses wilt and ruin the display. Fortunately, there is an easy cure. Remove the roses from their vase. Recut the stems and submerge the whole rose — stem, leaves, flowers and all — in a sink or tub of warm water. Leave the roses submerged for 30 minutes. Use that time to clean and refill the vase with fresh water and a bit of floral preservative.
Elegant, dramatic long-stem red roses are sent to impress the recipient or to express emotion.

Reviving wilted blooms
Show less For avid fans and growers of roses, there is nothing more disheartening than having a rose bush die on you. If you stay on top of caring for your rose bush, you may be able to save it from completely dying. To save a dying rose bush, clear any weeds or debris from around the plant to prevent disease, and pluck off any dead leaves or flowers. Then, after the last frost, prune off any dead branches by cutting the canes at a 45 degree angle just above a growing bud so the cane heals quickly. You should also apply a fertilizer every 4 weeks during the growing season to keep the bush well fed, and add inches of mulch to help the soil retain moisture and to fight weeds.
