Which roses are growing in Greece?
The flower is a beautiful shade of pink, but it is also prone to blooming in many locations, and so some are growing here in Greece.
In a survey conducted by the NGO Greece Flower, more than 80 percent of the flowers in Greece are in Greece, with the highest concentration in the northern and central areas.
The poll also found that most of the pollinators have moved to Greece since the financial crisis.
One of the most important factors that has driven this influx is the availability of cheap and abundant fertilisers.
“Fertiliser is now the biggest source of food security in the country.
There are a lot of farmers in Greece who have been using fertilisers for over a decade,” says Dr. Nikos Diklis, the head of the NGO’s research group.
Many of these farmers are farmers of roses, as they have access to cheap fertilisers from local companies.
“They have planted some seeds, and they can start growing their own plants now,” he says.
“It has been really good for the farmers to be able to produce more seedlings, which they could use for their crops.”
The survey also revealed that most pollinators are from the north, and this is where many of the roses are found.
“There is a big number of different species of flowers in this part of Greece,” Dikles says.
One thing that is clear is that the roses in Greece do not have to be expensive.
In fact, one of the reasons that the country has the highest demand for flowers is because of the cost of fertiliser.
“The price of fertilisers is very low here.
You can buy them for around €0.40 a litre, which is the average price of a single fertiliser,” Dikelis says.
The most important factor that has caused the increase in the popularity of flowers is that farmers in the south are able to access more fertilisers, he says, and that has made the prices of the fertilisers affordable.
“In the north of Greece, there are some small farms which produce flowers for about €0 and a half a liter a month.
In the south, it is much cheaper, but not as cheap as it is in the north,” Dikes says.
In addition to the popularity and the availability, the price of flowers has also gone up because of climate change.
“Climate change is also a big factor,” Dikais adds.
“Flowers in Greece have been growing faster in recent years.
They have been warming up as a result of the heat wave in the autumn and winter.”
In addition, farmers have also started to plant new plants.
“As more flowers are planted, the demand for seeds has increased.
Seed companies in Greece now sell seeds for €0, which means they have the same prices as before,” he adds.
One way that farmers are finding solutions to the climate crisis is by planting seeds that have different types of flowers.
“A lot of seeds in Greece come from seed companies, and those seeds are very expensive.
We need to find new varieties that are cheaper and are less difficult to grow,” Dijlis says, adding that it is important that farmers use only the best seeds that are not too expensive.
“For example, if you want to grow a new species of flower, you should plant a new flower.
If you are planting seeds from a company, you will need to use a different seed, but the seeds will be the same.
The quality of the seeds can also make a difference,” he explains.
As the price on fertiliser goes up, the availability goes up too.
“We are not going to see more expensive roses in the future.
It will be hard to get flowers from the south in the near future, so the prices are going to stay low,” Dikanis says.
According to Dikeles, the prices for seeds are still lower than in the past, but that could change in the coming years.
“I think the situation will change in a few years, but in the meantime, I think we need to focus on the needs of the farmers and look at the availability as well as the prices.
I think the availability will stay high, because we need the farmers for fertiliser.”
