Mother’s Day surge drives flower industry boom in south China

1 Min Read

The flower industries in south China’s Guangdong Province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region are ushering in a peak sales season of the year thanks to a Mother’s Day surge.

Retail and wholesale florists in both Guangdong and Guangxi saw significant increases in sales on Sunday — the Mother’s Day, which is seen as the start of a peak season for the flower business.

In the tech hub of Shenzhen in Guangdong, carnations, roses and Chinese peonies are the most popular among customers this year, and many local florists saw a boost to their transactions from the large shopping crowds.

“Sales here have been three to five times of that on an ordinary day. We have done all the work to make bouquets in advance. We expect 150 to 300 orders [today],” said Chen Qi, manager of a flower shop in the city’s Nanshan District.
