The Agricultural Centre in Cebu is located near to Gaisano Metro Mall in Mandaue (Near the Bridge heading to Mactan airport). I dropped by to see what plants were available as I was actually looking for dwarf Coconut trees and lucky enough they had some as well as a lot more trees and plants on offer.
The 7.5 Hectare site is best to drop by Monday – Friday when everyone is there. There are co-operative garden sections as well as the general and its the co-operative gardens that are closed at weekends (behind lock and key). Which if your looking for ornamentals the co-operatives seemed to have more plants on offer. The Agricultural centre though as a whole had more than most people would need for any garden. From small plants up to mango’s and large coconut trees. The interesting thing also is that people are helpful and willing to share how they grow things to help get you started.
The range of plants is pretty large and what I like is the number of edible plants there are available as well as how well the whole place is laid out for easy access. Ask “is there any more?” when your there as there are other garden sections not so obvious to find as well as vegetable gardens at the back of the site.
