Herbs Hunting & Plants Photos @ Sungai Buloh

If you have no idea where to buy potted herbs in Klang Valley, you’ve come to the right place. I can give you a tip or two on herbs hunting in Sungai Buloh. My 1st visit to Sungai Buloh after many many years ago happened last August. That time I found a nursery at Lot 43 that sells all kinds of herbs. It was quite a hunt back then because I stopped at quite a few nurseries along Jalan Sungai Buloh without any results until I almost gave up.

Fast forward 2 weeks ago, I visited Sungai Buloh again hunting for a new rosemary plant (since mine died quite a while ago). This time I knew where to go since I did my homework online. My plan was to visit Yeap Nursery which I heard sell rosemary and other herbs as well. If that fails then only I’ll visit Lot 43. Reason is I wanted to find more herbs selling nursery and because it’s fun. It’s like striking gold. Haha

Update: 2nd Feb 2014 – I visited Sungai Buloh yesterday. Yeap Nursery no longer sell herbs. The good news is its neighbor is selling herbs. Facing Yeap Nursery, the nursery on the right sells herbs like oregano, thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, parsely, etc. I think its called Sister Nursery.

Yeap Nursery is located just in front of Sungai Buloh Hospital (not directly). And when I finally found that place… wah la… I realized the nurseries I visited along Jalan Sungai Buloh wasn’t the ‘real ones’. These nurseries here in front of the hospital is the real deal. The fact that it’s near to Sungai Buloh Leprosy Control Center and also my mom finally confirmed this place was the one we visited many years ago. HAPPY! HAPPY!


After we found Yeap Nursery (with yellow signage), I mistakenly went to the neighboring nursery (facing Yeap on the left). It was there that I saw and bought a Roselle plant.

Chinese New Year Flowers 2010

Few weeks back I visited a plant nursery looking for some new pots and soils. The nursery is situated on a hill overlooking a busy main road. The place however makes you feel like you’re somewhere else… ummm like you’re in Cameron Highlands! Haha

I informed the owner of my interest in photographing the nursery as the place is so beautiful and serene. I was told to come back early February as there will be new flowers and plants coming in for Chinese New Year.

So here I am on the 31st January armed with my trusty D80. Initially I was using my kit lens (as I was shooting something else prior to this) but half way decided to change to my favorite 50mm f/1.8 lens because I just love bokeh. Haha

Note: Do click at the pictures for larger size. They’re pretty in big. ๐Ÿ˜‰
