The drought that has been hitting the north-eastern Cuban province of Holguin for the last months have also hindered food production, but also the planting and commercialization of flowers and ornamental plants.
The flowers for flower arrangements and wreaths are supplied by state farms mainly, but the service has been hindered by the drought that persists to go, as the last rains were not enough and did not come in time.
Evelio Fernandez Waogh, from the Provincial Directive Board of the Communities Services in Holguin, said that as flower supply dropped due to the lack of rain, they hired flowers to cooperatives.
Fernandez Waogh also said they have taken other measures to reach a stable supply of flowers all across the province, which would benefit the people and companies going for a top quality service. / By Leannis Berben Leyva.
