At first, I did gardening mainly to satisfy my passion. Later, the area was larger and when posting to groups received positive feedback, so it was very exciting. I want people to experience first-hand the infrared varieties from all over the world grown in Vietnam. And want to prove to everyone that the roses that are difficult to care for, difficult to please only grow in Europe or Da Lat, Sa Pa … can still be grown in Hanoi “.
The garden is neatly laid out by Ms. Thuy, with a clean path.
The garden has more than 10,000 rose plants of 300 different varieties.
