  With the Spring Festival approaching, more than 100,000 orchids are blooming in the Orchid Industrial Park in Xindian Village, Qianxi County, Hebei Province.

This is another orchid planting base of Taiwanese businessman Jing Wende in the mainland.

This Spring Festival, he decided to stay here and "kiss" the fragrance of orchids with this "deep breathing town".

  Qianxi County, Tangshan City, Hebei Province is located at the southern foot of Yanshan Mountain and at the foot of the Great Wall, with a forest coverage rate of 63.2%. It has been rated as one of China's top 100 deep-breathing towns for two consecutive years. It is known as "Yanshan Green Pearl" and "Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Back Garden" reputation.

  Jing Wende is from Taiwan, China and is 61 years old this year.

He followed his father in the flower planting business when he was in his 10s. Today, his industry has spread to Europe, America, Southeast Asia and other countries and regions, and he is known as the "Orchid King".

  From 1995, Jing Wende began to grow orchids in Guangzhou, Yunnan and other places.

"Previously, the large-scale cultivation of orchids was mainly concentrated in the south. In recent years, the flower consumption market in the north has developed rapidly. I decided to open up the market in the north." Jing Wende said.

  In early 2021, Jing Wende came to Qianxi County for the first time.

After many investigations, in December of the same year, he decided to draw the "map" of orchids here, and established Qianxi Baijiahui Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. to build a new northern orchid planting base.

  "The new base plans to invest 1 billion yuan. The first phase of the project will build the mainland industrial operation headquarters and R&D and production demonstration park, the second phase will build an 'Orchid Town', and the third phase will establish an orchid production cooperative." Jing Wende said.

  Talking about the reasons for moving to the west, Jing Wende said frankly that the latitude of moving to the west is similar to that of the Netherlands, and the climate is suitable for orchids to grow.

The local area not only has the foundation to engage in facility agricultural flower planting, but because it is located in the hinterland of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and has convenient transportation, it can also supply high-end consumer markets such as Beijing and Tianjin nearby, which is suitable for the development of the orchid planting industry.

  On that day, in the warm spring-like orchid greenhouse, Jing Wende took pictures of flowers with his mobile phone while observing the growth of the plants.

Jing Wende said that it takes decades for each orchid to go from wild to commercialization.

The mainland industrial operation headquarters he has laid out will be based on orchid breeding and mother bottle production, making it a seedling base for colored calla lilies and various orchids that integrates "production, education and research" and "production, supply and marketing" in China.

  "Lanzhiyiyi, Yang Yangqixiang, this is how I feel here, the scenery is as beautiful as orchids." Jing Wende said that the local government has provided him with the greatest policy support and services, and his wish is to put flowers It is beautiful, so that more people can enjoy it, and I hope that in the future, there will be another "Orchid Town" business card.

  "As a Chinese, I am willing to promote more cooperation and exchanges between the two sides of the strait and contribute to the reunification of the two sides of the strait." Jing Wende said that he believed that starting with orchids and accompanying friends from Qianxi, we will surely welcome a tiger with beautiful flowers. year.
