There is a level of eloquence, beauty, and class that is associated with roses. Roses are also commonly given as birthday gifts and anniversary gifts to a loved one.
Unfortunately, fresh roses wilt and wither sooner than they would like and then are forced to be thrown out. Also, there is a lot of work that goes into maintaining your fresh cut roses to look beautiful and healthy. You are required to cut the stems, use fresh water and nutrients for the roses. You will have to change the water quite often to keep them fresh – all this for a week; maybe a week and half. Then the rose buds will wilt and the petals will start falling off. This doesn’t sound too fun or exciting.
