Bulgaria is blooming – early, because of climate change

  • 2 months ago
Bulgaria is one of the top global producers of fragrant rose oil, and the lucrative rose petal harvest has begun - a month earlier than the historical norm, say experts.

"We checked our archive from 1987 and found that the active, mass onset of flowering of rose bushes was between June 10 and 20. And we have roses today that start blooming a month earlier," said agro-meteorologist Valentin Kazandjiev.
