People are now investing in plants to place in their homes. It is also a great way to keep yourself busy while at home, and at the same time, it’s very therapeutic! As the quarantine period eases, this means more people can now travel to places to buy plants.
In Cavite, one municipality is becoming very busy benefiting from this trend, in Silang. It is a tranquil town, and with the proximity to Tagaytay, the climate is very cool and ideal for growing plants. With its location, the nurseries found in Silang attract many plant enthusiasts from all over the place.
If you are planning to visit Silang Cavite, there are two places I highly recommend:
If you plan to visit Tagaytay, you will not miss the bypass area since it is located along Aguinaldo Highway. Once you drive past, you will find so many nurseries along the highway, and there is no way to miss them.
You can park anywhere and walk around the nurseries. Here, you will find a variety of plants that will make everyone excited. There are so many plants to choose from!
After I posted photos of my visit to the bypass area, many of my friends told me that I must also visit Ilayang Pulo if I wanted to buy more affordable plants. So after visiting a family friend, we decided to drive inside Silang Town.
Similar to the Bypass area, when you turn to Ilayang Pulo, you will immediately be excited again to see the number of nurseries in this area. Since it’s on a narrow road, you will find some nurseries offering parking space. Just get into one and start your plant adventure. Plants here are definitely more affordable.
So if you are going to ask me where to buy plants in Silang, it doesn’t matter where you go. If you are driving through Silang, then the bypass area is an excellent place to get plants. And if you have enough time to spend, then a drive to Ilayang Pulo is worth it.
As one of the certified plant enthusiasts, a trip to Silang became our favorite weekend drive. Just looking at the plants is relaxing, what more being surrounded by many in your house.
But please do not go into the forest and pull plants. I think that is a big no-no as you are ruining the natural elements of our forests and could harm biodiversity.
Anyone could take care of and grow plants. I think it’s also a great idea to teach our kids to practice cultivating a garden, whether ornamentals or vegetables, at home. Aside from being therapeutic, it also trains us in the importance of taking care of our environment.
