MANILA, Philippines — Flower prices in Manila are expected to increase as All Saint’s Day draws near.

Flower vendors at the Dangwa flower market in Sampaloc, Manila said the prices could double come Monday. The market is known for selling imported and local flowers.

In a report of state television network PTV vendors said there is no imminent price hike yet in Manila’s flower market as patrons planning to visit their departed loved ones are anticipated to shop for flowers by Monday until Wednesday.

Below appear the current prices at the Dangwa flower market as of Saturday:

  • Flowers with vase or basket – P50 to P250

  • Malaysian mums  (per dozen) – P80 to P160

The Department of Trade and Industry allows price adjustments in the flower market due to the demand.

Florists advised customers to shop flowers and adornments ahead of the two-day holiday on October 31 and November 1 to avoid the spike in flower prices. — Rosette Adel
