Prosperous production and sales of New Year flowers and tangerines

Entering the 10,000-acre horticultural world in Lishui, Nanhai, tourists and florists shuttle through the park, creating a busy scene.

The market and sales conditions are good this year, with prices generally rising by about 20% year-on-year, said by Zhong Rongyi, a representative of JiuJiu Biotechnology Company.

It is believed that the fifth to the twenty-fifth day of the twelfth lunar month is the traditional peak season for the phalaenopsis orchid industry. This year, the company's output value of phalaenopsis orchids reached 350,000 plants, of which 100,000 plants are sold in China, and some have been ordered by dealers in advance. "This year, the average amount of goods taken by customers is between 10,000 and 20,000 plants, which is relatively large. Moreover, the delivery time is about ten days earlier than in previous years, from the original 20 days to the 30 days before the delivery, which has demonstrated everyone's confidence in the market.

In addition to offline sales, Wanqing Gardening World has also actively promoted its products through e-commerce and live-streaming channels in recent years.

At present, there are more than 80 phalaenopsis orchid e-commerce enterprises in the park. In 2023, more than 5 million plants of phalaenopsis orchids were sold through e-commerce platforms, with sales exceeding 200 million yuan. The TikTok account of Wanqing Wanhui E-commerce Operation Center, "万顷满园园艺Wanqing Manyuan Gardening", has been broadcast for two years, with 276,000 fans and 171,000 orders sold. Among its product range, "Kingdee" is the most popular, with about 10,000 recent sales.

Shunde Chencun Flower World is also selling well.

A variety of New Year's flowers have been listed, attracting many people to book and buy. Up to now, nearly 30% of the New Year's Eve flower inventory has been sold.

Xianyong Village is the largest and most numerous village in Chencun with tangerine planting area of over 2000 mu, accounting for more than half of the total area of the village. There are over 2000 planting households, with an annual output value of over 100 million yuan. The reasons for the booming production and sales this year are mainly due to favorable weather, geographical location and people. The weather is sunny this year, with less rain, which is suitable for the growth of tangerine.
