The month of February is highly profitable for florists in Dhaka with three big events – Pohela Falgun, Valentine’s Day, and Language Martyrs’ Day. Last year alone, they made Tk50 crore in February selling flowers, said Babul Proshad, president of Dhaka Ful Bayabsayee Kallyan Somity Ltd. He told the Dhaka Tribune that they expected to sell about Tk70 crore during the three big events ending on February 21, the Language Martyrs’ Day. “We earned Tk50 crore during these three big events last year. This year, our target is Tk50 crore even though the supply of local flowers is less because of a virus attack and the cold wave.
