In the meantime, the Indian flower markets, which were experiencing a lull since November, have picked up once again this Valentine’s season. The wedding season, which begins in November, was badly hit this time right after the demonetisation move, according to senior officials of the Indian Society of Floriculture Professionals (ISFP).

With the start of the season, India’s major export shipments for Valentine’s Day are heading to the UK which shares 35% of the domestic exports followed by Japan at 19%, Australia at 18%, Malaysia, Singapore and Holland. Total exports range from R56-70 crore annually.
