During my first try, it wasn’t 100 percent successful because most of the seeds did not grow, so I bought more seeds and planted them.”
Galolo said she was surprised how the public recognized and loved her garden; this attention started when a photographer from the city conducted pictorial at the garden and posted them on social media, the garden has at 100 sunflower plants at the time.
The farm-owner offers additional ways for tourists to enjoy their visit. “They can also pose with colorful Chinese umbrellas, which they can rent for additional P10.00. They can also buy and pick a sunflower for only P70 pesos but if they want it to last for 3-4 days, we’ll put a water vial to prolong its life, which only costs P30 pesos.”
