Storing rose hips
Rose hips are not flowers but fruits. They have the longest shelve life when kept cold and as humid as possible. Storage just above zero is best, although from nature they can cope with a few degrees of minus during a night frost when the hips are still hard. A low humidity from indoor heating or direct exposure to a dry coldstore wind will cause the hips to dry out sooner. For longer term storage in a coldstore it is better to cover the product with a piece of plastic to prevent drying out. During cold and humid weather outside it is fine to display rose hips outside, as long as there is no frost.
