Buying Rose Plants in Malaysia - Lot 57 Selangor Green Lane


I'm so sorry that during my first visit to this place early one weekday morning, it was closed!

Standing outside the locked gates, I could see many many potted rose plants. I should have called to find out the opening times. Well, now I know that the nursery is usually opened after 2pm. Based on my telephone conversation with Mr Hew Pang Keong, the owner, he seemed to have a wealth of knowledge about roses, planting, care and propagation. I'm sure he will be able to teach and share information on rose growing.



If you are new to growing roses, buy those hybrids which are suited to growing in the lowlands. One example is the Ros Kampung (Village Rose) but there are also many other choices. Temperate roses are more difficult to look after and may not be suited to our climatic conditions. Same goes for Cameron Highland roses - not all can thrive in the lowlands.

Yay, I'm so glad I had the chance to visit this nursery again.  


There are many varieties of roses to choose from.
Some of the roses are as beautiful as those I saw at Floria 2011 last year.
Most of the roses we buy are rose hybrids and cultivars.

If you wish to know the names of the above roses, you can ask the owner.
He has all the info at his fingertips about the roses that he grows.
Roses are classified into old garden roses (e.g. kampung ros),
modern rose, hybrid teas, floribunda, polyantha, grandiflora, miniatures, etc.



The roses are growing under the direct effects of full sun and rainfall without the need for a cover or shade.
Some are sold in medium sized ceramic pots.


Some are sold in plastic pots. Prices start from RM 12.


Many are lowland roses that can thrive in our home gardens.
There are kampung rose, shrub rose, climbing rose, fragrance or no fragrance,
bloom in singles or in clusters, some almost thornless.
Flower sizes are miniature, small, medium or large.
I've been told that lasting blooms are almost odorless while fragrant blooms are not lasting.

Different varieties of roses have different petal colour, thickness, shapes and arrangement.


There are so many varieties to select, I wouldn't know which is which and what to buy.
Luckily, the owner was patient and willing to teach a newbie like me on the basics of growing roses.
You can call him later if you need further assistance or encounter problems at home.
Now, this is what I call good after sales service.


He has David Austin garden roses.
He also propagate new plants for sale.


He says he can help you plan, plant and maintain your rose garden.



You can buy organic rose manure here.


We are advised to use fertilizer specially formulated for growing roses and not to use the general purpose chicken/animal waste pellets, grannulated form, urea, foliar sprays for our roses.


He has the Christian Dior rose.

  1. I thought this blog is only a directory, i should have visited it earlier. It is amazing and beautiful, and for you to showcase these nurseries will be lovely, imagine visiting nurseries always like that. I was just prompted by One's comment in the last letter we both receive. I echo her comments on this site.

  11. Suddenly thinking of planting lots and lots of roses. Tried once but the blooms withered and then there were no more blooms ...

    Is it better to plant roses in pots or on the ground?

    1. It is better to buy rose plants directly from rose growers, than from roadside vendors, car boot sellers, hypermarkets. If you buy a healthy plant, it will grow, bloom and last very long. It is difficult for highland and temperate climate roses to thrive in our hot lowlands.

      I plant mine in containers. I find it easier to look after them this way.

  13. I bought 3 rose plants yesterday...my question is why do we need to pluck the rose buds before it is about 3 or 4 feet high..

    1. Hi Danial, were you advised to pluck the rose buds? I guess the purpose is for your plant to reach maturity stage before letting it flower in order not to stress the plant. It is important to let a young cutting become establish before letting it bloom.

  14. Hi. This is danial again. Am writing for my mom. Do you have the christian dior rose now. The last time we went, it was out of stock. Btw, how much does it cost?

    1. Hi Danial, actually I am doing a review and write-up of this nursery. I don't sell roses. You need to contact the seller to find out :)

  15. Thank you very much Ms. Autumn Belle. Indeed a very accurate description of the nursery owner. I bought 2 named cultivar and two un-named. The man has so much of knowledge in rose plant maintenance. I think I would pay him a few more visits to get more rose gardening knowledge and buy a few more hybrid roses that he has yet to set into rooted cuttings for sale. Such a rose paradise locally for a rose maniac like myself... thanks Ms. Autumn Belle.
