The sunflower garden in Tam Da street, District 9 starts to bloom in the last one month, attracting flocks of youngsters and photography enthusiasts, especially on weekends.

The flower garden covers an area of 2,000-meter square, which is only some 25km from the center of Ho Chi Minh city.

The area is around 4ha in size. We used to grow lotus and turn it into a tourist attraction. However, we’ve been growing more sunflowers in the past several months”, Ly Van Sang, 65, owner of the garden said.

It took me almost 2 months to do the soil, buy seedlings, and take care of the flowers. Sunflowers in my garden might bloom a little later than usual, as the soil is a bit acidic given its close proximity to the river” , Sang explained.
