Hanoi peach growers busy trimming leaves before Tet
As the Lunar New Year nears, peach growers in Nhat Tan Ward in Hanoi are busy plucking leaves.
The leaf trimming is often carried out between 40-90 days before Tet, depending on different kinds of peach trees.
It is very important to choose the right time to do pruning as this accounts for 70% of the peach blossoming success.
Nguyen Thi Mai said that she can earn VND300,000 (USD13) for the work per day.
People need skills for plucking peach tree leaves to ensure not to affect the blossoming. Around the 11th lunar month, growers will have to prune leaves and the top of peach trees once again so that more nutrition will be concentrated on the blossom development.
Some gardens in Nhan Tan have started welcoming customers who come to book peach trees.
Using sparklers is long-lasting habit of people in Vietnam, mostly on the biggest holiday – Tet.
