The price of gladiolus has gone up by 30 percent, said growers in Hiep An Commune in Duc Trong District.

Tens of growers were seen packing stems of gladioli to dispatch to Hanoi and some northern provinces on January 28. Some areas bloomed too early ahead of Tet this year, they say.

Lilies in Da Lat City also sold at good prices. Traders from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi had booked farms in Thai Phien flower village in advance. They pay well at VND30,000-40,000 a stem, which is VND5,000 higher than last Tet season.
