I have several rose bushes. My cousin is getting married in July and is wanting to use the petals from my roses for the flower girl. How can I start saving the rose petals for the wedding that will occur in about a month and a half? The wedding is set for July 14, 2007.
How can I save rose petals for a wedding in July?
I'm assuming you want fresh and that will be kinda tough. I would suggest cutting off entire heads of roses that are just getting ready to bloom.
Put them in a plastic container with a lid and a damp paper towel. Store them in the crisper in the fridge. Don't pull the petals off of the roses until you are ready to use them.
