NDO – Peach blossoms in flower gardens across Hanoi are now in bloom under the gentle sunlight as the Tet (lunar New Year) festival is just around the corner.

The last few days of the year are the most crowded time for peach-growing gardens in Nhat Tan ward and Quang Ba street, Tay Ho district, in Hanoi, as they attract numerous visitors, shoppers and traders.

According to the gardeners, this year’s peach blossoms have bloomed earlier than usual due to the sunny weather.

Binh, an owner of a flower garden in Nhat Tan, said that it is unpredictable to know when the peach flowers will blossom as it mostly depends on the weather conditions.

Although the gardeners have spent the whole year caring for the trees, they also need luck for a good crop and profitable season.

White-flowered peach trees originate from Lang Son province. This type of peach blossom requires greater care from growers, so they are not popular in Hanoi’s gardens.

Peach flower gardens attract not only shoppers but also visitors who come to admire the blossoms and take photos with them.
