Nepal: Demand for roses increases for Valentine’s DayWith the arrival of Valentine's Day and the celebrations that urban youths start a week prior to this day, the sale of roses has increased drastically in the Kathmandu Valley, according to traders.
Speaking with Republica, Ram Lama of Fresh Flower Shop at Tripureshwar, said: “There has been a surge in flower sales with the arrival of February. Red roses are in popular demand and people of all ages come to purchase rose for their significant others.”
He added: “In other months, usually only 1,000 to 1,200 roses were sold. However, in February, our shop alone has imported 12,000 pieces of roses, and the majority will be sold for Valentine's Day celebrations.”
Goma Tamang of New Florist Shop at Tripureshwar seconded Lama's claim. “There has been a drastic rise in demand of red roses this February, and in fact the demand has increased than the last year,” She said. “There has been a leap in sales of roses on February 7th, which is celebrated as the Rose Day, and the first day of Valentine's week.”
