May The Green Be With You in 2016


Long time readers of this blog will surely know Mamarazzi's pakai hentam method in almost everything la....hmm...so the last post for this year should be what leh? This year have been okay kinda year ...a lot of frustration felt by many towards the second half of the year especially about the country's economic situation.

Leaders of this country have been alleged to ask citizens to go green and plant more edibles at home. We did that. Well, maybe that's why Mamarazzi feels a gardening related post will be good for the final post of this year.

 
Yup ...in our garden, there are a lot of edible plants and she is learning something new nearly every day. For example....the Cekur Batik plant of hers... the flower in the morning will be purple in color....but by the end of the day...the color will fade and turn into silky white.

Mamarazzi have heard of the nurseries opposite Sg Buloh Hospital from many sources but have never ventured there as she biasa buy from the nurseries along Jalan Subang-Sg Buloh.

That was the case till she stumbled upon this Jacky Lim Nursery in Facebook. Though the posts are written mostly in Chinese but thanks to the translate function in Facebook, Mamarazzi can guess the contents. *hip hip hooray to FB*

 
What made Mamarazzi wants to visit this particular nursery was because of  these....air plants. It was obscenely cheap. The air plant with wind chime cost only RM12 each .

Another nursery nearby is also selling air plants with pumpkin looking wind chime at RM18.

While these "coconutty" looking air plants cost only RM10 each. She saw in a nursery at Jln Subang - Sg Buloh, the same thing cost RM48!

(photo taken at another nursery nearby there)

Yea...now Mamarazzi is into air plant as they are easy to take care. Just mist them every 2 days will do. And when they bloom, they are lovely to look at. Most of all, they don't take up much space.

There are so many nurseries at that area but no proper address. But luckily, Jacky Lim Nursery posted their phone number in Facebook. She gave them a call and the man directed her to his nursery. Very efficient and friendly.

After getting the air plants, she walked around. 

Asked the man's permission to snap some photos. Scared kena scolding mah. Saw there are signboard that state no photography allowed in another nurseries at Jln Subang-Sg buloh . So better ask permission first lo. The man happily say no problem ...snap more photos...free advertisement mah... what a jovial man he is.

Adui...these adenium...cost only RM25. Think it's about a foot high. 

Some taller ones cost around RM35 , RM40....something like that la.... and some of the flowers are multi petals type. Aiyo...she felt like grabbing them all home.

For those who wants something cheaper....these were RM10 each...if not mistaken.... or was it RM10 for 3...not sure...go their FB and check.

 These lovely orchids were only RM7 a pot. Mamarazzi couldn't resist and grabbed a pot as Papa likes orchids.

 The cheapest hibiscus so far that she know of...RM15 a pot...2-3feet high with lovely bloom. It's one of those big blooms hibiscus ; some with multi petals and some with stripes.


Cannot linger at the nurseries for long as it could turn out to be a costly trip. Everything is so cheap around there. Makes Mamarazzi feel like wanna buy them all.

Within half hour trip, Mamarazzi managed to grab two air plants, 1 pot of orchid and found the Kesidang plant that Papa was looking for...RM7 only.


Chinese New Year is coming. Spotted many nurseries there are having various type of Lime Plant. Guess there will be high demand for it next month as CNY approaches.

Okay..drooling for some greens for your home or office? Well, drop by Sg Buloh and hunt for yourself. Here is the address to Jacky Lim Nursery  , Jalan Lembah , 47000 Sg Buloh Selangor.  If you are lost, can call the guy at 012-360 1769. 

Surrounding area is full of nurseries. Spare some time to walk around and you might find great bargains. Heard from a friend that another nursery there called Leong's also selling plants at a very cheap price. Will go and hunt when time permits.

 Note: Found out that Jacky Lim Nursery also can Poslaju plants to customers who are too busy or too far away...to Sabah Sarawak also can.

Last but not least....The Force Awakens in 2015...hopefully there will be changes for the better in 2016. May the force be with you and Happy 2016!
