A LAUTOKA City Council initiative to promote green products attracted about 60 nursery owners, florists and planters from around the Western Division to Shirley Park yesterday.
Prices ranged from as low as a dollar to $40 for ferns, cactus, creepers, orchids, sandalwood, fruit trees and baby palm.
Vunato resident Vasiti Masi, 53, who has been in the horticulture business for 20 years, said they looked forward to every opportunity to engage the public to sell their flowers.
"This is a good business in the sense that it helps the environment, and for those who buy it is promoting health in their home environment."
Newcomer to the business Tokasa Batiniu said she was selling her red palms for $10 a plant. Council CEO Jone Nakauvadra said the week-long event was organised to support women in the district who sold flowers and plants for a living.
