Buying Plants and Flowers from nurseries in Selangor Green Lane



This is a Directory of Nurseries in SELANGOR GREEN LANE which is situated along Jalan Subang-Sungai Buloh in Selangor state. It is about 40 km or a half hour to 45 mins drive by car for me to reach here. For PJ and KLites, it is about 15 mins drive?

You can find almost anything you need at quite reasonable prices. New plants from around the country and overseas are constantly being introduced via this wholesale and retail distribution centre. Some examples are roses and jungle plants from Cameron Highlands, festive plants from Holland and China. Here, one can also find wooden, concrete, ceramic, rocks and stone products and statues, water features and fountains, pagodas, gazebos and pergolas in standard shapes and sizes and also custom-made to your specifications. Some of them provide garden design, consultation and landscaping services in addition to selling plants, herbs, spices, orchids, bonsai, trees and flowers. Hey, I can even find Japanese koi fishes, pond construction and consultation services here.

Here is where gardeners and garden enthusiasts, landscape contractors, interior designers and decorators, etc... from all over Malaysia congregate to do their "shopping". It doesn't matter if you are a novice or master gardener, hobbyist, business owner or reseller. There are all kinds of products and services to suit your Garden Style/Concept - eg: Chinese, Japanese, Zen, English Cottage, Rustic, Balinese, Nusantara, Modern, Contemperory or DIY.

If you are new to this area, it is better to do some homework and shop around, check and compare prices before buying. Identify your own favourite vendors.




Do be careful about your safety, as this is a very busy highway with many cars and lorries zooming past.

Location map of Selangor Green Lane in Sg Buloh:
1. Click on the image below to get a larger view of my illustrated map


2. To view Google interactive map, click here

a) For those using the NKVE, exit the Sungai Buloh Toll. Keep to your left and cross the bridge towards Sungai Buloh. DO NOT TAKE THE FLYOVER. The first nursery you see on your left is Ah Chui Nursery.  Keep left and continue straight until you reach the junction of Sg Buloh KTM Komuter Station. Turn left towards Shah Alam way into Jalan Sungai Buloh  - the route on Google map is No. 15. (Note: Going straight will lead you to Sg Buloh town and Kuala Selangor - No. 54). Driving along Jalan Sungai Buloh, you should pass by an army camp, some furniture shops and restaurants on your right. After a couple of km, the first nursery you'll see on your left is probably Lot 16 SMM Nursery or Semaian Ming Ming.

b) From Kepong, Sg. Buloh or Subang, head towards Shah Alam way into Jalan Sungai Buloh - route no. 15 on Google map. You should pass by the Rubber Research Institute of Malaysia (RRIM).  Go straight and look out for Lot 70 on your right, just after the T-Junction to Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (Old Subang Airport).

Selangor Green Lane is roughly from Lot no.16 to 72 along Jalan Subang-Sungai Buloh. It starts from the junction near Sg Buloh KTM Station and ends near RRIM.

3. The GPS location is at GPS Location : 3.170935, 101.570790

You can shop for potted live Christmas trees in Selangor Green Lane now. The best time to buy poinsettias is 2 weeks before Christmas. For Chinese New Year shopping for fengshui plants, it's late December to early January. For this, I'll keep you informed, hence do watch this space.

Happy gardening!

How to buy the Plants in Tropical Cities book in Malaysia



BOOK REVIEW
Plants in Tropical Cities
by Boo Chih Min, Sharon Y.J. Chew, Jean W.H.Yong

The newly released "Plants in Tropical Cities" is a clear and concise handbook (like a mini-encyclopedia) of tropical and sub-tropical plants. This book is 100% loaded with vivid and colourful pictures of plants and flowers found in tropical cities ...1 000 pages, 2 800 featured plants and 6 800 photos!



The aim of this book is to increase awareness among the general public and nurture interest in tropical plant species. This guidebook will be very useful to gardeners (green horns and green thumbs), horticulturists, landscapers, students and researchers who are keen on plant identification and understanding their growth requirements.


The authors:
1. Ms Boo Chih Min, is a graduate of botany from the University of Singapore. She is the author of the best-selling gardening book in our region, "1001 Garden Plants of Singapore"(one of my favourite reference books for plant ID of tropical plants). Chih Min is an experienced landscape consultant with many years of experience working at the National Parks Board of Singapore.

2. Ms Sharon YJ Chew, a graduate of Applied Science, majoring in plants from the University of Queensland; and also in Horticulture and Landscape Management from Ngee-Ann Polytechnic Singapore.

3. Prof. Jean WH Yong, an Associate Professor at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. He studied botany at the National University of Singapore; and biochemistry and physiology at the Australian National University. More information about him here.


In the first 867 pagers, plants are categorized by Scientific Name in alphabetical order.

Here's what I love most about the book: In the next section (page 875 to 979), there is an index of plants grouped into the different categories according to type and purpose, taking into account areas of specific interest such as indoor plants for the apartment dweller with limited space, and vertical or rooftop planting for the eco-gardener.
  1. Cycads
  2. Palms
  3. Ferns and Fern Allies
  4. Climbers
  5. Trees
  6. Ground Covers
  7. Hedges
  8. Plants that attract butterfly
  9. Plants that attract birds
  10. Indoor Plants
  11. Aquatic Plants
  12. Drought Tolerant Plants
  13. Fragrant Plants
  14. Seaside Plants
  15. Roadside Plants
  16. Plants for Green Roof Planting
  17. Plants for the Greening of Vertical Wall
  18. Epiphytes
  19. Mangrove and Mangrove Associates


For each plant species, there are pictures of the foliage, flowers and fruits highlighting important morphological characteristics. Information provided include the Scientific Name, Common Names and Synonyms if any. The common names are in English and where applicable, the Malay name and Chinese characters are also provided.



Pictorial icons are used to denote botanical information, characteristics, plant care requirements, planting guide and potential horticulture application.

What the symbols (picture icons) indicate:
  1. Plant habits: Trees, shrubs, climbers, ferns, palms, cycads
  2. Plant care requirements: Sunlight, watering
  3. Plant use/characteristic: Tropical native, plants suitable for roadside planting, seaside planting, aquatic plants, drought tolerant plants, indoor plants, ornamental flowers, ornamental foliage, herbs & spices, plants that attract birds or butterflies are all indicated by picture icons.
A summary of the genus names in alphabetical order is provided at the back of the book (page 982-989) for easy and quick reference.

What is missing from this book is the summary list of Common Names for plant species matched with the Scientific Names and the location page. This will be useful for the layman who only know the common name or local name and wish to find the scientific name of a particular plant. Also, the specific region or country of origin of each plant species is not mentioned but if the plant is native to Singapore and neighbouring countries, it is indicated with an icon depicting "Tropical Natives".


The good quality photos of plants and flowers are itself an attraction that motivates the reader to flip through the pages again and again to familiarize him/herself with the many tropical plant species that are commonly found in our region. Like the saying. "a picture speaks a thousand words", therefore with the clear and comprehensive method of presentation, it makes the plant ID learning process so much more interesting and simplified. The authors' passion for tropical plants identification and flare for photography is clearly exhibited in every page.

I would like to emphasize that it is good for the gardener to know the scientific names of the plants that we want to grow. If we know the scientific name, then we can search for more details about the growth requirements, specific needs and habit of the plant. This will increase our chances of success in growing the garden plants that we like. It will also reduce our tears of plants dying on us suddenly, seemingly without reason. Do be brave and adventurous to try out as many plants as you can. After all there is nothing much to loose but our time and efforts. The wealth of knowledge and experiences is the soul enriching and happy reward....Elaine Yim
