Sowing seeds “in vain” in the plum garden, the owner of Son La garden earns millions every day

At Chieng Di slope (Van Ho) there is a beautiful and dreamy white blooming mustard flower garden, located right next to the national highway, attracting hundreds of tourists every day.

Over the past month, Son La has attracted a large number of tourists from all over the world when it comes to the season when plum blossoms are at their most blooming, and white and yellow canola flowers are in full bloom. On weekends, thousands of tourists come to Moc Chau for sightseeing, photography and camping.

On the way from Hanoi to Moc Chau along National Highway 6, visitors will pass through Van Ho – a highland district separated from Moc Chau district. This place possesses a wild and majestic beauty no less than Moc Chau with waterfalls, caves, tea hills, and immense flower fields…

In recent years, when Moc Chau tourism developed, people in Van Ho began to deploy many trading services, open farms, flower gardens, homestays… to serve tourists. Along Highway 6, many households take advantage of their family’s farming garden to grow seasonal canola and yellow canola flowers, creating a check-in scene to attract tourists.

At the Chieng Di slope area (Van Ho), there is a garden of plum flowers and canola flowers that are blooming white and dreamy, located right next to the national highway, surprising visitors.

According to Ms. Giang Thi Chu – the daughter of the garden’s owner, on the occasion of the Lunar New Year , the garden welcomes about 800 visitors every day.

Over the past two days, guests went in and out continuously, family members had to take turns looking after the garden and collecting money. “Visitors flock to Moc Chau to see plum blossoms. When passing the Chieng Di slope area, seeing my house’s cabbage garden in full bloom, lying on the side of the road, they stopped to visit and take pictures and rest,” said Ms. Chu. .

The family also opened a stall to rent national costumes, take care of things, and sell some local products such as vegetables, apricots, plums, …

Tran Thi Ngoc Anh’s family (Hoang Mai, Hanoi) took her two-year-old daughter, four-year-old daughter and three-month-old grandchild to Moc Chau for tourism. When crossing Chieng Di slope, the whole family was attracted by the pure white cabbage garden.

“The scenery was so beautiful, so we quickly stopped the car, went to the garden to visit and take pictures. This place is located next to the national highway, so it is very convenient to move,” said Ms. Ngoc Anh.

It is known that in the past, this garden planted plum plums to harvest fruit. However, after about 30 years, plums are old, so there are fewer flowers and fewer fruits than before. To earn extra income, Ms. Chu’s family sowed yellow and white mustard seeds in mid-November.

After about 2 months, the flowers bloom, forming pure, dreamy white patches in the late winter and early spring, attracting tourists. “My house just sows seeds, but I didn’t think it would attract so many visitors,” said Ms. Chu.

“This type of cabbage does not take much care. This year, it rains a lot, the soil is moist, so the flowers grow well, less need to be watered,” said Ms. Chu.

Cauliflower season will last about a month. Currently, the price to enter the garden is 20,000 VND / visitor, and the rental price for costumes is 30,000 VND / set. On Tet days and weekends, garden owners can collect millions, even tens of millions of dong.($1=24,000 VND)
