HOW TO WIRE A PRESERVED ROSE:
Wiring a preserved rose involves using floral wire and floral tape to create a rose stem so it can be arranged in a bouquet or floral arrangement. The process typically involves the following steps:
- Cut a piece of floral wire to the desired length for the stem of the rose.
- Carefully insert the wire into the rose's base, ensuring not to damage the petals.
- Wrap the wire tightly around the base of the rose, and secure it with floral tape.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have covered the entire wire with floral tape to create a stem.
- Trim off excess wire or tape to create a neat, finished stem.
Handling the preserved rose gently is essential since the petals and leaves are delicate and may break easily. Also, since the rose is already preserved, the stem may be fragile and less flexible than fresh flowers.
It is important to note that the preservation process may affect the flexibility of the stem, and the wire may need to be inserted at different angles to ensure stability and support for the flower.
HOW TO REFLEX A PRESERVED ROSE:
Reflexing a preserved rose means bending the flower's petals downward, away from the bloom's center. This technique creates a more natural, relaxed look in floral arrangements. The process of reflexing a preserved rose typically involves the following steps:
- Gently hold the rose by the stem and use your fingers to carefully bend the petals downward, away from the center of the bloom.
- Use your fingers to shape the petals to your desired position.
- Repeat this process for each petal, working your way around the rose.
- Once you have reflexed all the petals, you may also want to adjust the shape of the rose by using your fingers to shape the petals.
Handling the preserved rose gently is essential since the petals and leaves are delicate and may break easily. Also, since the rose is already preserved, it may be less flexible than fresh flowers, and you may not be able to reflex the petals as much as you would like.
Reflexing a preserved rose is a delicate technique; working with one petal at a time is best. Take your time and be gentle, so you don't damage the petals.

Preserved roses are also an important product for (D.I.Y.) weddings. They are used in many different ways, for example in wedding garlands, wedding bouquets, table arrangements, corsages, backdrops, welcome signs, wedding arches, and flower crowns.

How long do preserved roses last, is a question we often get asked. The answer is; you should get your dried and preserved flowers to last for at least one year, and most likely much longer if they are used correctly. This means indoors, out of direct sunlight, and avoiding exposure to high humidity. If you do this, you will get the most value out of your preserved roses and you can enjoy them for years.
