Besides the Spring Flower Festival, the city will organise Tet flower markets at six locations, including Le Van Tam Park in district 1, Gia Dinh Park in Go Vap district, Phu My Hung street in district 7, from January 25 to January 31.

Nguyen Thanh Ha, an owner of a flower garden, said he planned to transport 1,000 apricot blossom trees for sale on Pham Van Dong street in Thu Duc city.

"An apricot blossom tree can be sold at 2 - 15 million VND (88-660 USD)," he told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper, adding that demand for purchasing the tree is likely to decrease compared to normal due to the impact of the pandemic.

A representative of Phuong Binh apricot garden in Thu Duc city also said the rent of an apricot blossom can drop by 30-40 percent against that of last year due to falling demand.
