It’s been 2.5 weeks since I bought several potted herbs from Sungai Buloh. Let’s see how my herbs fair after nearly 3 weeks with me. LOL I didn’t re-potted the herbs into new pots unlike last time because I thought it’s better not to disturb them in their comfortable home (pots). This way is smarter I think especially for inexperience gardener like me.
I’ve bought a total of 6 herbs plus 1 more which is my mom’s but under my care. Place all of ’em beside my basil in shady area. I sun-bath them from morning till evening on the bricks fence except on rainy days.
All photos below will show a comparison on the day I bought the plants home and today’s condition.
Rosemary looking good so far but I think for a healthy rosemary, its leaves will grow upward. Mine sometime will be a horizontal and a bit droopy. As for lavender, it has grew taller. Yipee! Can’t wait till it flowers.
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.
