Buying Plants in Tagaytay (Mahogany Market)

I've been to Tagaytay numerous times, but skipped buying plants at the roadside because I didn't want to risk getting side-swiped by speeding vehicles.

Last weekend we discovered the Mahogany Market. We went there to buy fruits and vegetables, but was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of plants for sale!

There were flowering plants - magnolias, zinnias, orchids etc. and  non-flowering plants (just leaves). Each plant cost at least PhP20.

All kinds of herbs and spices which you can get 5 for a PhP100.

And fruit bearing plants like calamansi, American lemon, orange, duhat and many more. Depending on the size of the plant you can get it at PhP50 (make sure you bargain!).

Mahogany Market is located at Mahogany Avenue. Here's the map:

Sonya's Garden

Visited Sonya's Garden last weekend and I couldn't help but stand an awe at how beautiful the place is. I bought a couple of plants and the staff said that everything they have is organic and they do not use chemicals to treat plants.

Here's a couple of nice snaps I took of the awesome place:
