Any recommendations for good garden centres or similar places to buy outdoor/indoor plants in South Delhi?

I've just got myself a new apartment and now I want to fill it with greenery...

Thanks

There is a lovely nursery next to the Oberoi/Delhi Golf Club entrance below the flyover

Great - would that be the Sunder Nursery, between Humayun's Tomb and the National Zoological Park?

OK I made it to Sunder Nursery today, very close to where I live as it turns out.

Unfortunately it was closed for lunch, but on the other hand it's directly opposite the entrance to Humayun's Tomb, so I spent an hour in there and went back after it opened.

Took me a while to work out how to buy something - you take an immediate left to get to most of the plants as you go in the gate. I found a man and asked him for what I wanted and he took me to look at the plants etc. and then got a chit from another man and then took it to the sales desk in the building next to the gate.

Maybe it's off-season but they didn't have any manure, which is mainly what I went for. Lots of bougainvillea though.

It seems that the place is being renovated as part of some PPP scheme, and lots of workers are laying paths and turf, and planting new plants.

I found it a very pleasant and peaceful place to wander around, and some interesting birds flitting around, including Hoopoes which I'd always wanted to see since I was a boy! Also loads of Barbets, some Sunbirds, and Peahens wandering about.

Anyway - thanks again Vishva! I really enjoyed that little trip.

Just found another place, much smaller but very conveniently located. Plus they have seeds, tools, hoses, compost/manure, coir, and a large range of pots.

Masjid Nursery in Khan Market, about 5 minutes walk from the metro station.

As the name suggests it's right next to the mosque (not shown on google maps). And handy for grabbing an auto right outside the door on the busy road (Subramaniam Bharti Marg), if like me you don't have a car.

They're closed Sunday and Monday.
