The Jashore district's Godkhali is appropriately known as Bangladesh's flower capital. While many locations are renowned for growing a variety of crops, Godkhali is noted for its extensive flower farming. More than 50 districts around the nation receive their floral needs from Godkhali's wholesale flower market. Additionally, exports of flowers are made overseas. The fields here are home to at least 15 distinct varieties of flowers, including but not exclusive to marigolds, rose, gladiolus, tuberose, and gerbera.

Godkhali Flower Market, the country's largest flower market, is aiming to make Tk 25 crore in sales during three consecutive festivals, including the spring festival and Valentine's Day. Due to the pandemic that has caused a two-year economic downturn, florists are charging hefty charges.

In various areas of the city, notably the northern districts of Tangail, Rajshahi, Chapainawabganj, greater Pabna, and Bogura, as well as the Savar Upazila of Dhaka district and other flower-growing Upazilas of Jashore, florists are selling flowers. Sales of flowers, greenery, and bouquets will be strong today in Dhaka. There have been substantial preparations made by numerous flower-selling locations, stores, outlets, and online flower marketing platforms. The typical blossom will only last two days throughout the summer. It's simpler in the winter since, depending on the kind, flowers can live for up to five to seven days. A local florist stated,"If we cannot sell all the flowers within two to three days, then we have no choice but to throw the remainder away as trash” The flower market is blooming in Bangladesh as the flower capital plays a vital role.
