To make the potpourri, the first step is to make sure that your roses are in full bloom, before plucking out the petals of both roses. Spread them out properly (make sure they don't overlap) on a newspaper sheet, and along with this, place 2 curly strands of peeled lemon skin to dry out as well. Drying roses is a simple method, when laid out on a paper in open air. You can keep a window open but make sure there are no strong gusts of wind to topple your petals over. As long as a window is open in the room, your petals should be able to dry faster. Once your petals turn brittle to the touch, carefully place them in the jar, and add to this two teaspoons of essential oil, one teaspoon of the bergamot orange fixative, cinnamon sticks, the two long strands of lemon peels and the vanilla bean.
Another common rose disease is Black Spot, and it is caused by a fungus named Diplocarpon rosae. As its name already implies, this disease appears like black spots on the leaves and then the foliage turns yellow falling completely in early autumn, also as a consequence, the flowers lose the intensity of their color. Black spot can be prevented by means of proper sanitation but also fungicide needs to be sprayed once or even twice a week during rainy seasons.
And with this, I would like to take your leave. Now that I know the meaning of roses, I got to get some for my near and dear ones. Why don't you too get a bouquet of some sweet smelling roses of your choice? Leaving you with this poem...
Who doesn't love the smell of roses? Their earthy, deep fragrance echoes something you'd smell while standing amidst the trees in a rain forest. Its myriad of colors makes it even more of an attractive flower, blooming in colors of pink, white, yellow, lavender, red, blue and even black. We're constantly sending off roses to loved ones and those we know when an occasion or special event rolls in. But what happens to those roses when they shrivel up and die? No one ever really ponders about what more can be done with a rose, except toss it away at the first signs of its petals browning and drooping. Here we explore newfound ways on what can be done with roses, without having to toss them away when they start to wither.
