Rīga starts planting flowers for the summer

Summer flower planting will begin this week in Riga parks and streets. Winter plants have survived well, and the recent spring cold and snow have not hurt them much. Only the large Sakura garden in Pārdaugava did not blossom as glamorous this spring because of the cold, Latvian Radio reported May 12.

"This is what happens in nature – each spring is different. The roses have wintered perhaps a little worse than they have in other years. In spring, the dead shoots had to be cut lower, but in principle they all survived, said Ilze Pīrāga-Gremze, head of Riga Forests.

The manager of Riga Forests also said the company will start planting summer flowers in the capital this week.

“There will be the first flowerbeds very soon,” she said.

The official also said residents appreciate the beauty of the city, and there is less devastation done by people in parks with each year.
