How to avoid dangerous neighborhoods

No matter how carefully the color scheme of the bouquet arrangement, its texture and shape, all efforts will be reduced to zero if the plants wither quickly. To prolong the life of the “queen of flora”, you should not put in the same vase with her:

  • daffodils
  • hyacinths
  • carnation
  • mignonette
  • sweet pea
  • levkoi
  • lilies of the valley.

All of these flowers emit toxins that are dangerous to roses and accelerate their wilting. Daffodils and hyacinths also fill the water with mucus, which clogs the stem capillaries and prevents moisture or nutrients from reaching the buds.

It is better to avoid the neighborhood with any bulbous, except for lilies. They have a beneficial effect on the "flower queen", and this process is mutual.

Noble roses are "quarrelsome". They are able to "poison the life" of neighbors in a bouquet, and in the literal sense of the word. Chrysanthemums, delphiniums, lilacs, irises especially suffer in the company of the "monarch". Hybrid tea varieties of dark and light shades are also not recommended to be put in one vase.

However, today, when multicomponent arrangements of field, garden and exotic plants are in vogue, you have to "bypass" the rules. In plants that secrete mucus or toxic sap, the stems are burned, the water in the vase is changed more often, disinfecting and nutritional supplements such as "Krizala" are added. A floristic sponge (piaflor), which will prevent the stems from touching, will also protect against dangerous mutual influence.
