Perhaps you are like me who got into the gardening craze to keep me entertained amid the current pandemic. Good thing Singapore is known as the Garden City, so, plant-related establishments are not hard to find. Below are my most noteworthy places where you can buy plants and gardening supplies in Singapore.
Ban Nee Chen is a well-established nursery and landscape services provider in Singapore. It has been around for more than 50 years and has grown into several branches of nurseries and retail stores. They sell everything related to gardening like seeds, soil, compost, fertilizers, plants, flowers, planters, stands, tools, and accessories. A big plus for me is the staff’s gardening knowledge which is very helpful for beginners like myself. They were very accommodating and they answered all my questions. They even shared some gardening tips! They also have a website where you can order your gardening needs or simply browse through the pages and learn plant names.
Far East Flora is another old-timer in the floriculture industry. It was founded in 1965 by three brothers who started selling fresh flowers from their small van. Today, Far East Flora is a major retailer and wholesaler of plants, flowers, and gardening supplies in Singapore. The company has also expanded to include plant rental, landscaping, and flower delivery in their portfolio. Visit any of their five garden centres to check out their imported plants and flowers from Holland, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, China, Malaysia, and Vietnam. I always take extra time whenever I visit their flagship store at Thomson Road just to admire their beautiful flower collection especially the fresh tulips from Holland!
Chin Ling Nursery is another gardening store that I love visiting because of their very organized display. Entering this nursery is like walking into a beautiful garden! It’s a little bit far from the city centre but I always drop by when I’m in the area. Their staff is also very helpful and you can learn a lot from them. They offer a wide range of gardening products like plants, pots, water features, garden tools, soil, compost, fertilizers, pesticides, garden lamps, garden art, stones & pebbles, outdoor furniture, and many more. Chin Ling Nursery is a proud recipient of multiple LIAS Awards of Excellence since its establishment in 1984.
