Imported flower market busy on Vietnamese Women’s Day
In a flower shop on Ba Trieu street, Hanoi capital, bouquets of flowers cost between VND1.5 – 3 million (equivalent to US$65 – US$130) each.
Thien Di, a flower shop owner, says imported flowers have become a favourite item on Vietnamese Women’s Day in recent years due to their beauty and freshness for between 12 and 15 days.
This year has seen sellers receive a considerable increase in the number of online orders, with the majority valued at around VND2 – 3 million, equivalent to US$87 to US$130, each.
Roses imported from Ecuador are among favourites this year, with each hovering between VND130,000 and VND190,000, or US$5 to US$8.
The most expensive item available is “Thao duong hoang de”, also known as Sugarbushes or the King Protea, priced at VND520,000, or US$22, each.
“Cuc mau don”, also known as the Peony flower, are imported directly from the Netherlands.
A bouquet of flowers contains various unique colours.
Florists have a busy day ahead as people celebrate Vietnamese Women’s Day on October 20.
Their work requires plenty of skill and creativity.
