To make streets look more beautiful

Flower beds of various shapes along the streets of Pyongyang catch the eyes of the people.

Red, yellow and white flowers grow healthily on the flower-shaped pots standing in tiers in Ponghwa, Kyonghung and Pulgun streets as if boasting their freshness and beauty.

They are cultivated by the employees of the floricultural farm of Pothonggang District.

Though it has been less than a decade since it was organized, it is furnished with a greenhouse to produce fresh flowers all the year round, an outdoor flower cultivation ground and sci-tech learning space.

“We built everything we need by our own efforts. At first, it was really a tough job and we had many difficulties, but now we feel proud of our efforts,” said Kim Kwang Sok, manager of the farm.

At the beginning there were only one or two who had ever had hands-on experience of flower gardening among the employees.

But all of them turned out for the building of the greenhouse and outdoor cultivation ground, cultivated flowers and did others by their own efforts.

The farm designed the greenhouse as a heating-free one to ensure high efficiency and maintained the principle of optimization in the arrangement of flower seedlings and management of the greenhouse. It also built a sci-tech learning space to raise the level of technical knowledge and skills of the employees.

After laying the solid material foundations, it concentrated on growing flowers healthily.

It carefully established a flower cultivation process to suit its specific conditions, produced humus and biological fertilizer by itself and built a catfish breeding pond in the greenhouse. It also applied a variety of scientific watering and sterilization methods and subdivided the work so that the employees could specialize in their jobs.

In the course of it many employees graduated from the correspondence course of Pyongyang College of Urban Management to become horticulturists and improved their skills. The farm was highly appreciated at the municipal flower shows on several occasions.
