Lonely Planet review
The nurseries operate year-round, though they are practically stripped bare of their flowers just before the Tet festival. Domestic tourists from HCMC arrive in droves on Sundays and the nurseries are a major sightseeing attraction around the Tet holiday.
Marigolds are sold in abundance to temples and the nurseries are inundated with water during the flood season, when gardeners get around by boat. There are many small operators lining the river and canals here, each with a different speciality. It’s interesting to swing by in the morning and watch the plants being loaded on to boats. A motorbike from town will cost around 20,000d.
