After a while, my mother had a rose Garden small in front of the house, making anyone passing by whisper, then offered to buy. From there, I came up with the idea of growing business roses.”

Next, the flower needs enough water, enough fertilizer and timely pruning so that the flower is not stunted. Finally, you should spray essential oils, biological drugs to prevent pests and diseases for plants weekly. Do not allow the plant to be treated by pests and diseases.
When the accumulated experience gradually increased, also when the flower varieties he imported had developed stably, he combined with borrowing more to rent a piece of land near the street with many passersby, and set up a facebook page to run ads. . Only after 8 months rose Garden His work was famous throughout Dak Lak and the southern provinces. Since then, income has gradually improved.

When there’s more time to take care rose GardenViet Anh feels that his soul is relaxed and peaceful when waking up every morning, the fragrance of roses is full of poetic and romantic all over the space.
