Poh Soon Garden

Since I visited this nursery before the Chinese New Year (CNY), it was all decked up to usher in the lunar new year. There were red lanterns hung on trees along the main path of the nursery. Oh, the nusery is so filled with festive mood!

As I was trying to look for the nursery owner, a man who was sitting nearby asked me what I need. So I introduced myself and requested for some information regarding the nursery. Another man (who was the owner!) then quickly told me that everyone in Klang knows of their nursery... oh, okie... Anyway he later revealed a few things about the nursery as I continued to check out the place :-)



Poh Soon Garden opens daily from 8.00am to 9.00pm. They have been in business for more than 30 years. I was told that this CNY was their 31st.



Plant Variety Rating: 4.25 | There are quite a number of shrubs, ornamental festive plants and even some small potted succulents and cacti.

I love the many wonderful pots of kalanchoes and chrysanthemums they have there. They have some of the most amazing colours.



The owner also showed me some of his prized lime trees or limau kasturi that he has grown with his own hands. The one in the pic below is about 7 to 8 years old and is selling for more than RM1,000! The rest of the lime trees are about 2 to 3 years old. Lime is called 'kat' in Chinese, a homophone that means auspicious. Bring some of these 'kats' home and you will have plenty of wealth this year, some say ;-)



There are many varieties of plants at the nurseries including popular ones like canna lily, desert rose, ixora, little bird plant, China aster and garden croton.





Plant Condition Rating: 3.75 | Most of the plants look good especially the festive plants.

The brighly coloured chrysanthemums are auspicious flowers that are supposed to bring lots of joy the new year ;-)



Layout Rating: 3.50 | There are many plants in the shade. Most plants are placed at the right hand side of the nursery as you walk in. On the left is where you can find lots of pots and garden supplies. Although the main path is quite big, the aisles between rows of plants are not big. 




Garden Products Rating: 4.50 | Plenty of pots and garden supplies are sold there.
