Florists in USA, UK and many other countries are skeptical now days because of the global warming. Global warming has not only effected wild life animals, but the growth of flowers in USA, Italy and some regions of UK and France are also highly effected by the curse of global warming.
One of the popular British newspapers said that oak trees are coming into leaf 10 days prior than they were 30 years ago. Some spring flowers in UK gets into bloom as early as December.
The fragrance and the freshness are very most important aspect of flowers and in UK florists goes with extreme measures in order maintain it to last longer. Due to global warming in UK, USA and through out the world flowers are loosing their aroma. The only method to solve this problem is by introducing genetically adapted flowers. Dr. Abdul Latif Mohammad, the Scholar of Science and technology in Kebangsaan city of Malaysia, introduces this method of genetically modification of flowers.
Global warming has an effect on the chemical compound, which is responsible for fragrance in flowers. This chemical compound gets dried due to the effects of global warming. In colder areas of USA and UK flowers scent last for longer period. The essential oil is preserved in plants and flowers, for long time in colder weather. Following this phenomena many the scientists are working on genetically modification of flowers to help florists to retain fragrance of the flowers even in hot regions of USA and UK.
Planting bougainvillea and the tropical shrubs are quite easier due to their low costs and durability. Other flowers and shrubs are expensive and as they loose their aroma, they become useless for the florists and flowers shops in USA or UK.
Though global warming is the Mother Natures own pleasure, but it is effecting the pleasures of florists in England, United States and many other popular flowers trading hubs. Spread this information and help flowers growers and florists in UK, USA or any other region affected because of Global Warming.
