Semaian & Dusun Hew

If you are looking for fruit trees and don't mind travelling some distance to get one, here is a nursery that's worth visiting. Semaian & Dusun Hew farms and retails a wide variety of fruit trees.

When you enter the nursery you will notice a very welcoming road that leads you to a shed and the nursery. You will have a good view of the whole nursery from the gate with the highway on the 'horizon' as the nursery is located on a valley-like lower ground.



Semaian & Dusun Hew opens daily from 8.00am to 5.30pm. They have been in this business for more than 20 years.



One thing you need to be mindful of when you are at the backyard is to be careful... there are guard dogs here! So, ask the owner or the attendant to always follow you around if you wish to take a look at the plants that are at the back or far end. You will find more fruit trees, hibiscus and other ornamental plants there.

Plant Variety Rating: 4.75 | There are plenty of fruit trees and some really nice ornamental plants.

I saw groups of pulasan Muar, limau madu (honey mandarin), limau nipis Siam and jambu (guava). From their brochure, I learnt that they have other good hybrid of durian, nangcem, longkong, mango, rambutan, jackfruit, coconut and water guava.



Besides these wonderful fruit trees, I saw many gorgeous hibiscus in a number of colours, shapes and sizes. The hibiscus flowers here made me wished that I have a bigger garden. They are all so attractive!



They also have a small collection of water lilies. I saw white and purple lilies.



The other ornamental plants found here are cycad, canna, little bird plant, bougainvillea, palm and bucida.



Under a big tree near the shed, there are some really nice agloanemas, dieffenbachias and wild orchids.



Plant Condition Rating: 4.50 | Most of the plants are in excellent condition. You can find many fruit trees bearing fruits and ornamentals bearing beautiful blooms.

In the pics below you will be able to see bountiful limau purut (Kaffir lime). Just in case you want to touch and smell them, they have signage here warning you not to touch the fruits ;-)



There are also dwarf ground orchid, hydrangea and amaryliss.



Layout Rating: 4.00 | I was able to browse all the plants easily eventhough there are both fruit and ornamental plants in the nursery.

All the fruit and ornamental plants of same variety are placed in group. Between the grouped plants are ample space to walk through. So, it's easy to check out the plants.

The only problem is the sun. All plants are out in the open! Please bring a cap, hat or umbrella if you are afraid of strong sunlight :-D



The nursery can be seen from the Jalan Semenyih main road, near the Kajang-Seremban Highway interchange. A Shell petrol station is located indirectly across the main road. To view the map, click here.

Dear Stephanie,

It would be nice if you could suggest me some Nurseries who export "Bud-grafted" saplings of Various Durian Cultivars.

Thanks

Jacob.
