Malaysia: Demand for blooms has peaked this month

Flower sales have been booming over the past few weeks, with major celebrations falling in the month of May. Florists here said the reopening of the border between Singapore and Johor also helped boost sales.

Florist Jun Lim, 35, said that sales during Mother’s Day doubled this year compared to last year. “Overall, sales have increased, and we can see more customers walking into our two shops in Tebrau.

“However, online sales decreased as people prefer to buy flowers in person these days,” she told The Star. She noted that there was a shortage of flowers due to the sudden increase in demand coupled with a supply shortage.

“The next major celebration is the ‘520’ celebration on May 20, which is considered a romantic date for Chinese-speaking customers as the three numbers in Mandarin rhyme with the phrase ‘I love you.’
