HÀ NỘI — Though Tết (Lunar New Year) is still three weeks away people are making a beeline to gardens to place orders for their favourite kumquat trees.

Gardeners in Nhật Tân and Tứ Liên wards in Hà Nội’s Tây Hồ District are taking special care of their peach blossom and kumquat trees to get good prices during the Lunar New Year. The areas are bustling as a result.

“Due to this year’s abnormal weather, we have to take very good care to make the flowers blossom in time,” Tuấn Việt, owner of a peach blossom garden in Nhật Tân, told the media.

A three-metre peach blossom tree at Nhật Tân would be priced at VNĐ25 million (over US$1,100) to VNĐ30 million if it blossoms in time, while kumquat would cost VNĐ500,000 for a small tree and VNĐ2.5 million for a big one, a farmer in Nhật Tân said. — VNS
