HCM CITY — The cost of flowers has risen slightly since Tet (Lunar New Year) as Valentine's Day approaches.
Roses cost VND60,000-120,000 (US$3-6) for 60 flowers, depending on colour and size. High-quality red roses cost VND3,200 per flower.
A shortage of carnations from China has pushed prices up to VND70,000-VND80,000 ($3.5-4) for 20 flowers.
The Da Lat Hasfarm Company said it would provide about 3 million flowers for Valentine's Day. — VNS
