Between 6.5 and 7 million roses will be bought for gifts on Sant Jordi, according to the Flower and Ornamental Plant Market of Catalonia wholesaler. This amount shows an increase of 25% compared to 2017, when the holiday fell on a Sunday, according to wholesalers. This year, instead, it falls on a Monday, and florists believe that as well as seeing a lot of street traffic, they might even see businesses buying roses for their employees.
