Bangladesh: Jessore florists anxious about meeting 2020 revenue target

The florists, despite being skeptical about profits next year, are busy planting Rajanigandha (tuberose,) rose, gerbera, marigold (gada,) gladiolus, gypsy, and other varieties of flowers.

Florists in Jessore are worried that the upcoming 2020 may not reap adequate profits compared to this year, as the lingering effects of natural calamities (Cyclone Bulbul,) increasing use of plastic flowers, and cultivation of flowers in other districts may bring about losses.

They usually earn the most during the first day of the new year, Pohela Falgun on February 13, Valentine's Day on February 14, Language Movement Day on February 21, and National Victory Day on December 16.

The florists, despite being skeptical about profits next year, are busy planting Rajanigandha (tuberose,) rose, gerbera, marigold (gada,) gladiolus, gypsy, and other varieties of flowers.

Upon visiting several flower farms in Jhikargacha upazila's Godkhali union, it was found that the abundant roses were covered in white sheets. Farmers said this is done to delay their blooming until they are eligible to be sold on those special occasions.

February 13 and 14 are the busiest days for the florists, when Pohela Falgun and Valentine’s Day are celebrated respectively. Traders say the sale of flowers soars with the celebrations, especially on Valentine’s Day, as exchanging flowers among loved ones on these special days is a common ritual in the country.
