At a time when the fragrance of roses and carnations is beginning to fade away in the city of flowers, farmers on the outskirts of Peshawar have managed to keep things abloom.
A large number of floriculturists in Suleman Khel, Bazid Khel and Shahab Khel are growing a variety of flowers which are also exported to other cities.
One of them is Mohabat Khan: “Flowers are the main crop of all three villages. However, the region remains particularly dangerous as people from the cities find it hard to access it.” According to Mohabat, militancy and personal enmities among residents have made it difficult for outsiders to enter the region.
