Nothing is more pleasing than to receive freshly cut roses. In order to send fresh roses, florists ship them while the flowers are still in bud form. This will guarantee the recipient will get a good deal of delight, since the flowers only blossom after they have reached the intended destination.
Prior to cutting of roses, they are watered first. This helps hydrate the flowers to ensure they will last longer after cutting. They are cut early in the morning since if they are exposed to the sun, they become less hydrated. Sharp pruning shears are used to cut the roses at a 45-degree angle.

The stems should be 10 to 12 inches in length to ensure a good condition and form. Then, the stems are wrapped in a damp newspaper or cloth to maintain moisture. The buds and leaves are left uncovered. After which, the flowers are placed in the refrigerator until they are ready to be packed to maintain their freshness. They are not placed in the freezer because they may wilt. The wrapping should be pre-moistened when necessary to keep them hydrated.
In packing the roses, ice packs are securely taped inside under the insulated cooler or box. A blockade is created between the flowers and ice packs by using dry newspapers, paper towels, or cloth. The roses should not directly rest on the ice packs. The stems' wrapper is re-moistened and is loosely covered with cellophane.
The cellophane-wrapped roses are positioned into the package or cooler. To prevent damage during the shipping process, the extra space around and on top of the flowers are filled with newspaper or paper towels. Then the box is securely closed with packing tape.
