I walked into Jacky Lim Nursery from a neighbouring plant vendor. All the outlets here in this former Sungai Buloh Leprosy Centre -- that has grown into a fascinating horticultural centre -- are in fact linked in a row so you can move from one nursery to the other with ease. You can even consider spending the whole day here just admiring the beautiful plants on display :-)
At the front of this nursery that I visited I found to my delight many desert roses on one side and roses on the other side. Then as I was exiting the premises by taking the stairs down to the main road, I discovered that the plot opposite the road is also theirs!
Jacky Lim Nursery truly lives up to what is advertised on its name card -- that they sell scarlet flowers and all kinds of flowers besides wholesaling and supplying various trees. There were indeed lots of bright shrubs being on sale and I saw many gorgeous-looking red roses, hibiscus and desert roses.
The desert roses are labelled and in excellent condition. The one in the pic below is named Rose Valentine...
At the back of the nursery, they have lots of bougainvilleas.
I also noticed that those plants that were placed at the back are plants that have passed their prime.
The nursery opens from 8.00am to 7.00pm daily and is situated behind a house. So you might not be able to spot the farm from the road.
Plant Variety Rating: 4.50 | I love the desert roses here. They come in small sizes. Great for those who have not grown a desert rose before and now wanting to grow one. It's a robust plant that is hard to kill. My desert rose has been with me since I started the hobby :-)
Plant Condition Rating: 4.00 | Most of the plants are in good condition.
Layout Rating: 4.00 | Though a little tight on space, one can still mill through the nursery with little hassle :-D
Garden Products Rating: 4.00 | At one end of the nursery, there are ceramic pots and if you would like to get some fertilisers, they have them as well.
