Since the start of the Circuit Breaker period in 2020, many Singaporeans have taken the opportunity to find new hobbies to fill their time with meaningful activities. One of the trends that exploded back then (and is still popular today) is… being a plant parent. 


Every spending situation is unique. SingSaver assembles the ‘Best For‘ list, so you can decide what’s best for you.


Whether it’s dalgona coffee, Zoom cocktails or cloud bread, pandemic trends come and go. But if there’s one trend that looks like it’s here to stay, it’s gardening. 

Many Singaporeans are turning to gardening as a hobby to relieve stress and spruce up their living spaces as they continue to work from home. According to The New Paper, indoor plant sales have shot up since the start of CB, with many people choosing to grow plants with air-purifying features or herbs so that they can reduce their patronisation of wet markets and supermarkets.

Plants are cheaper at a nursery compared to boutique stores

Let’s say you’ve decided that you want to add to your plant collection or start gardening. Where should you shop? Plant nurseries are the way to go, especially if you’re on a budget. 

As nurseries import various plants and flowers in bulk at wholesale prices, they are able to extend these savings to you. With smaller boutique shops, the costs are often higher as time and effort are needed to repot, resoil and arrange the plants to look #Insta-worthy. 

A wide variety of plants is available at plant nurseries, from most common to rare

There are tonnes of plants for sale at nurseries dotted around Singapore, from the common monstera adansonii (Swiss Cottage Cheese plant) to the fan-favourite ficus lyrata (fiddle-leaf fig) and the rare alocasia zebrin. Some of the nurseries that carry rare plants include The Chlorofeel and Chye Heng Orchid Garden (which we will touch on later). 

So, if you’re thinking of getting yourself some affordable new plants for the house and wondering where to buy them in Singapore, here are a handful of plant nurseries you can purchase exotic plants, edible plants and ornamental plants from.
