Gardener grafts peach trees for Tet

A gardener in Nhat Tan village has been successfully grafting different kinds of peach trees to create special flowers for Tet.


The Anh, a gardener in Hanoi’s flower village of Nhat Tan, has been successfully grafting different kinds of peach trees to create special flowers for Tet.

 

Gardener The Anh at his work

The Anh grew up in a family that has planted peach trees for three generations and now is the owner of a peach tree orchard of more than one hectare that lies along the Red River.

He buys forest peach trees from the northern provinces of Lang Son and Son La and grafts them to Nhat Tan peach branches.

He says that this grafting should be only done during the run-up to Tet, as that is the time when the weather is most favourable.

“It takes around one year to get the final product of grafted peach trees, so this year's grafts will be ready for the next Tet holiday,” he said.

Only about half of the grafts take successfully, and these trees are to be sold for around VND10 million (USD479.1) each, he added.
