Jambagh flower market is located near Mozanjahi market in Hyderabad. The major flowers traded in this market are rose, jasmine, chrysanthemum, marigold and crosandra.
There are two wholesale flower markets in Bangalore, one each at K.R.market (better known as City market) and Russel market, Shivajinagar. The former is bigger and most of the wholesale trade in traditional flowers takes place there. Modern flowers are traded in Russel market. However, the bulk of the modern (non-traditional) flowers like long stemmed rose, gladiolus etc. do not pass through any wholesale market. The major flowers traded at the K.R. market are jasmine (mallige and kakda) crossandra, marigold, chrysanthemums and aster. Small quantities of rose (loose blooms and long stemmed) and gladiolus are also traded. Flower arrival in the market is seasonal. Jasmine (kakda; seentless white blooms) season in the market is between August and January. Chrysanthemums start arriving in July and last up to October. The demand for chrysanthemum, marigold and aster reaches peak during October due to dussehra, when buses and other bicycles are profusely decorated with flowers. Rose (traditional) is bought and sold outside the market premises generally. Wehre the sellers themselves retail them. Most of the trade takes place at predetermined contract prices. The city service buses carry maximum flowers to the city market from the villages and suburbs of Bangalore. Farmers bring roses on motorcycles also. Long distance flowers are however transported by bus, truck or train.
