July 7 marked the annual Chinese Valentine’s Day.
For many flower vendors at the Chajie Flower Market in central Kunming, Yunnan province, this is one of their busiest times over a year, for the soaring demand of roses.
Red, pink and even artificially-painted blue roses were avaliable along with a great choice of wrapping papers and silk ribbons in stock.
The prices of roses and some other flowers doubled before and on the Valentine’s Day, ranging from 200 to over 1,000 yuan.
Sellers now can make personalized flower boxes depending on customers’ needs, and online booking and delivering services are guaranteed.
