Thanks Cooked, someone told me that there are large nurseries near the Chao Praya river, I need to find out more about the exports of plants from Thailand to Dubai. I am glad you mentioned Chiang Mai as the biggest market for plants. I will surely visit CM. Any particular area in CM where they sell plants for wholesale/export?Wholesale? The only market we found that looked like you could do wholesale business was in Chiang Mai, the biggest in Thailand. From what I have seen, Thai producers tend to specialise, so going from nursery to nursery may be the only way to go.
Thanks Cooked, I am now getting richer with my knowledge of plants markets in Bangkok/thailand with your help and information about these markets. There is a huge demand of certain fresh outdoor plants in Dubai/UAE and other Gulf Arab nations. And I heard that Thailand is one of the best places where we can get specially Bougainvillea, at a much better price in wholesale like container loads.Khamtieng (Khumtiang) plant market, easy to find. I naively went there at 8am and there was nobody there, they like to wait until it's really hot before they start work in Thailand. Orchids galore, aquatic plants, fruit trees, cactus, the lot. I don't think we saw half of it. I am still a bit puzzled as to why the selection of seeds in Thailand is so meager.
Hi Mweiga, You were very right, after readying your post, and upon my arrival from Dubai, today I visited Nakon Nayok and you are absolutely right, the nurseries are extremely large and all varieties of plants (outdoor ones) are available there. I studied the prices and they are in fact, very good for export.Nakon Nayok , just north of Bangkok , is a major centre for large garden centres and wholesale suppliers of garden plants , trees and shrubs. Suggest you make a trip up there to check it out as it's not that far from Bkk.
People come from far and wide to buy here for their large scale garden projects. I developed my own 3 rai garden down here on the northern gulf with several specialist items deilvered from Nakon Nayok and found the suppliers reliable on delivery and very reasonable pricewise.
Hi there! can you share more about your trip to NN to buy gardening supplies? how should i tell the location to taxi driver if i were to go by taxi?Hi Mweiga, You were very right, after readying your post, and upon my arrival from Dubai, today I visited Nakon Nayok and you are absolutely right, the nurseries are extremely large and all varieties of plants (outdoor ones) are available there.

Thanks for your suggestion to visit NN, it was a pleasure drive right by the canal. The best plants are available at the nurseries at the canal bridge 15 (the road has golden elephants holding the light lamps on the posts).Beautiful throughout. It took an hour and twenty minutes to reach this place from Sukhumvit road. Thanks again.
Hi KBL, all you need to tell the taxi driver (hopefully you get one who can speak somewhat english), is to take you to Nakon Nayok at a junction of canal bridge 15, Turn left on canal 15 and there is a very long road with golden elephants on top of the lamp posts holding lights. This road is almost 7 km long and on both the sides of the road, you will find plenty of nurseries selling bougainvilleas and many other varieties of fresh plants.Hi there! can you share more about your trip to NN to buy gardening supplies? how should i tell the location to taxi driver if i were to go by taxi?
