Although in the Ottoman Era the town had been the flower supplier of the sultan’s palaces, at nineteen centuries, Bayındır had lost its importance, nearly up to the 1990’s. Production was done by simple methods in limited numbers for near local markets at that time. Increasing demands for living in better a environment, forced the municipalities to give more importance to the green areas. As a result of this trend the development of Bayındır has began and it has become one of the major growing centers in the area of bedding plants, ground cover plants and outdoor plants. Today Bayındır has two grower’s cooperatives which have nearly 700 members and the total growing area is reached to 240 ha., one fourth of this area is covered. The total amount of production is one hundred million plants of a variety species. Bedding plants are the most grown plants, with the amount of sixty million. Ground cover plants are in the second position with twenty million seedlings. The total production value is 20 million Euros. This is nearly 10-12 % of total Turkish flower sector. Among winter plants Viola, Bellis, Chrysanthemum are on the first place. In summer bedding plants tagetes (Tagetes erecta), begonia and salvia are the most produced plants. In recent years especially summer plants have been exported to Turkmenistan, Azaria, and Iraq..
