Fangcun Birds and Flower Market

Just posting a couple of photos here to record this place as an absolute ‘must see’ if you are near Guangzhou.

It’s a market/shopping complex with everything you’d ever want for bonsai/penjing/chinese decorating, aquariums, etc.

The range is stupefying and, of course, the already cheap prices are negotiable.

When I go back it will be with some space in a container, plenty of cash, someone to negotiate for me (cause I’m hopeless) and plenty of time.

Don’t miss this place!



Best Garden Nursery in Sydney


Penjing and Bonsai enthusiasts from all around Sydney rate this place as the best garden nursery in the Sydney area. It’s reputation has spread interstate with visitors insisting on a visit. If you’re sick of the bland and generic offerings from other nurseries then you simply must visit this place.

It’s a general nursery smack bang in the middle of the Vietnamese community here in Sydney. They have general garden plants and supplies that you will not be able to find anywhere else.

And a massive range of pots, figurines, gravel, wire, tools, everything and the lowest prices anywhere.

Run by a wonderful Vietnamese family and tell Lee that I sent you!
