    Cut the flower head off, and plant the rooted cutting in some gritty soil outside.

    If you plant it where you want the final plant, you won't have to move it.

    So romantic. Let's hope the roses and the romance last a long time. If you don't have a permanent spot in the garden for the roses, you can grow them in pots for many years and have a moveable display.

    My dad is still growing the red roses I got for valentine's day 1996! He keeps them in the greenhouse
