Kenya's blooming flower industry bounces back

In Kenya, agriculture makes up nearly a quarter of the economy and flower farming is particularly profitable.

Despite a temporary slump in the market, the flower industry generated $500m (£305m) in sales in 2013.

In previous years, the figures were much higher.

The BBC's Lerato Mbele visited a farm in Naivasha, a town north-west of Kenya's capital Nairobi, to report for Africa Business Report.
