Welcoming Christmas and New Year in Tomohon


The moment of welcoming Christmas & New Year is a blessing, mercy and grace for the flower farmers in the villages of Kakaskasen Satu, Kakaskasen Dua, Kakaskasen Tiga and Kakaskasen, who are the main providers of fresh cut flowers in Tomohon City. From ancient times, Kakaskasen Village (now divided into 4 sub-districts), in Tomohon City, has been very famous for its potted fresh flower plants and cut fresh flower plants as well as its fresh flower arrangements, which are sold freely at flower stalls. Along Jalan Raya Kakaskasen - Tomohon, when welcoming the Holy month of Christmas and New Year, when the need for fresh flowers and potted plants soars, new flower stalls or florists will appear. The increasing demand makes cut flower farmers compete to plant cut flowers, some even planted more than usual. And almost all the fresh flower farmers are members of the Tomohon City ASBINDO farmer group.

There are around 650,000 standard and spray chrysanthemum cut flowers. and thousands of other cut flowers which are also planted by flower farmers to welcome the holy month of Christmas & New Year, such as Kerk lily, Rose, Gerbera, Aster, Hortensia, Gladiolus, Pikok, Tuberose, and Amaryllis. These cut flowers will begin to be planted in mid-September 2023, and will be harvested in the third week of December.
