Auspicious plants, flowers and bright decorations are an essential part of Chinese New Year. One evergreen is the Kumquat tree, which symbolises good fortune, but consumers can expect to fork out a little more in 2020. Suppliers said the quality of Kumquat trees has been affected by rainy weather, and gardeners have also been hard to come by. So, some wholesalers have cut down on orders, which means trees that are small to medium in height may cost one to two dollars more. Larger kumquat trees, about 1.8 metres tall, are about 3% to 5% more expensive.
