Sa Đéc flower gardens are 03km from Sa Đéc city centre, and cover an area of 313ha, with around 2,000 households living. The flower gardens have two sides adjacent to the Tiền and Sa Đéc rivers, which are convenient for transportation by water and by road. These gardens were established in the 1930s, typically the rose garden of Mr Dương Hữu Tài has more than 400 species of flowers and precious medicinal herbs. For nearly a hundred years, Sa Đéc has been famous throughout the country for its traditional ornamental flower and ornamental plants. Sa Đéc’s flowers and ornamental plants are supplied to the Mekong Delta provinces, Ho Chi Minh City, central provinces, and Cambodia market and are heading to other export markets.
Coming to this peaceful village, visitors also feel like they are lost in a world full of colours and magical scents of flowers and ornamental plants including thistle, areca, fig, benjamin fig, ochana atropurpurea but through skilful, industrious, talented hands of artisan-artists. They became priceless bonsai with beautiful and uncanny forms. However, the most in quantity and type here are roses. Currently, the village still preserves over 50 kinds of roses: velvety rose; lotus violet Grada rose, pink Cleopatre roses, Bridibat roses of dark brick colour, Frotini roses, Elizabeth flesh-coloured roses; orange mascaras roses; Metsai roses of white colour…
The most noticeable difference between Sa Đéc flower village compared to other flower villages is that the flowers are planted on high trellises, the bottom is flooded and flower growers have to wear boots or use small boats to care for or pick flowers. This way can help the farmers save costs and also avoid floods due to low terrain.
