Today we will follow a Chinese flower farmer and a Thai flower farmer, and as their stories unfold we will find out about the attitude of the local people to flowers and their social and cultural significance, and learn about the flower trade and its huge economic potential and environmental significance in these areas along the great Lancang-Mekong River.
