Hi Green Baron,

Thanks for your kind suggestion. Actually, boonboon, one of our forum leaders has given me a long list some time back.

Just that I have not got the time to put it up!

Apologies and I will work on it later in the month - got exams coming now!

Hi Vistary,

Maybe all of you can post the links up here while giving me more time to compile them later on?

Many thanks!

Sure no problems. I only frequent those in thomson. I heard there are more at sungei tengah but dont really know their speciality and exact address.

BTW World Farm operating times are 9am to 6pm (Mon to Fri) and 9am to 1pm on Sundays. I went there today at 5pm and it was closed :cry:

Anyway, I will list one here:

Far East Flora(Thomson) - CP= Pitcher plants, venus flytraps and drosera; Succulents = Aloe, Lithops..many;

Cheap Bonsais (from as low as $3 ea pot)!!

Can be found at 16 Highland Terrace near Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre. It would be easier to drive there cos its a pretty secluded private estate. The owner is very friendly and ever-ready to share Bonsai tips with you. 62800558 is the number to call before you show up at the doorstep!

Hi Gillie,

My apologies, here's a link to some of the more commonly visited nurseries our members here visit:

http://www.greencult...p?showtopic=305

There are many more that our members here found out along the way. You may want to ask for specific nurseries so we can give you pointers for that.

like to add the locations of the nurseries i frequent.

Kovan is a good place to go to for variety.
there are several nurseries there.

Far East Flora at kovan has slightly cheaper prices there.
u can get discounts when u buy more.
look for Selvam and tell him that u r frens of Sandy.

another one at kovan is in the centre of the row of nurseries.
dunnno the name.
many nice plants at cheap prices.
heard that the owners are doing this more to pass time than to make big bucks.
there is an auntie and a middle-aged man who tend the place.
the auntie usually wears a straw hat and there are 2 stray cats that they've adopted.

hi there,

i'm new here in singapore and am looking specifically for "desert"-tolerant plants - would anyone of you know which nurseries have a good stock of them?

will move into a renovated upstairs shophouse apartment soon, which has 2 floored light wells in the middle; needless to say they are very unsightly with all the aircon units standing in them as well.
hence i'm thinking of placing a few larger, decorative plants out there, preferably lush and green, to make this area look a bit more welcoming.
my only issue is that the air out there is extremely hot, as we are on the top floor and the light wells get direct or indirect light all day and the aircon units are adding to the high temperatures. i will need large-ish pot plants which are virtually desert proof, ... or are there any other suggestions?

any advice is greatly appreciated!

many thanks,
linda

I've been desparately looking for an online plant nursery directory, but can't find a reliable one!

Do you know of or use one?

I'm looking for hardy plant nurseries in the midlands. I've tried Yell and Google but these don't seem to be complete.

Thanks a lot!
