Price of roses is increasing due to International Women’s Day.
They are currently sold at VND 6,000 per red-colored rose while roses of different color are sold at VND 4,000, said farmers of Van Thanh Flower Village in Da Lat Town of the central highlands province of Lam Dong on March 3.
There is low productivity on the farms due to the cold weather. In addition, Chinese traders and merchants also buy the flower in bulk therefore creating a high-demand environment.
Many farmers are refusing to sell to new merchants.
