Ming’s Garden

My absolute favorite plant shop is MING’S GARDEN in Tagaytay!

Friendly & informative staff – check!
Great interesting selection of plants – check!
Huge, walkable grounds – check!
Reasonable prices – check!
Cafe – check!
Clean restrooms – check!

The cafe I’ve honestly never tried. We would roll into Ming’s too early or too late to sit down for coffee or snacks. Plus, I get too focused on the plants that I don’t even notice the cafe.
But, it’s nice to know that when I do feel like hanging out, it’s just there 🙂

This is the little shop front with the cashier’s desk.
Not very impressive huh? Wait till you walk the grounds to the right and behind this tiny desk!

There are plants that I am still waiting to be available for sale!

Jade vine: This will be perfect on our gazebo. I can just imagine the bluish green flower clusters falling from the ceiling!

I took photos of these unnamed plants from a special section of their nursery where rare collectible plants were propagated. I am hoping they become available soon!

We’re going to need many more trips to Ming’s to fill our garden… And maybe another, bigger SUV! 🙂
