Flowers in Trà Vinh selling like hot cakes

Flower growers in the southern province of Tra Vinh are excited as this year’s flower season has been productive, with price increases from VND10,000 (50 US cents) to VND15,000 per pot compared to last year.

 

Specifically, prices of daisy flowers and dahlia range from VND75,000 to VND100,000 per pair, while paper flowers cost from VND80,000 to VND 100,000 VND per pair.

Hong Phan Dau, a flower planter in Long Duc Commune, Tra Vinh Province planted 4,000 flower pots of all kinds.

“Prices of flowers this Lunar New Year are higher than other years from VND10,000-15,000 per pot,” he told Vietnam News Agency.

More than 60 per cent of his flowers have been purchased by traders from Binh Chanh District, HCM City and Tra Vinh Province, he said.

Tra Vinh Province has two ornamental flower villages, one in Vinh Yen Hamlet, Long Duc Commune and one in Long Binh Hamlet, Ward 4 with 158 households growing flowers on ​​nearly 30 hectares.

Developed over more than 60 years, the two villages were recognised by the People’s Committee of Tra Vinh Province as traditional villages in 2011.

Nguyen Thi Ngoc Nhi, head of economic division of the provincial people’s committee, said the province is building many programmes to develop the two villages.

The locality will mobilise resources for investment in transport infrastructure, electricity and water supply for gardeners to approach new science and technology.

In recent years, thanks to the flowers, people in the villages have a more stable income.

Every year, these two villages supply Lunar New Year markets with about 300,000 pots of flowers.

Apart from serving markets in the province, Tra Vinh flowers are also popular and traded in provinces such as Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Binh Duong, Ho Chi Minh, Dong Nai and Ben Tre.
