Flower capital of Bangladesh Godkhali flower market is hoping to capture Tk 25 crore worth of trade on three in a row festivals along with spring festival and valentine’s day. Florists are taking high prices as they have been going through two years of economic depression due to pandemic.
Love is in the air, and February 21 is only a week away, when millions of people around the country will pay tribute to the martyrs of the Language Movement. As the two events approach, local flower vendors are preparing for their busiest season of the year.
Florists are selling flowers in many parts of the capital, including the Savar upazila of Dhaka district, Jhikargachha and other flower-growing upazilas of Jashore, and the northern districts of Tangail, Rajshahi, Chapainawabganj, greater Pabna, and Bogura. Today, flower, greenery, and bouquet sales will be lively in Dhaka city. Many flower selling points, shops, outlets, and online flower marketing platforms have made extensive preparations.
