Last week we had prayer meeting in my house and a friend was telling me how she found the Fig Farm which we have been trying to locate. She not only found the farm but she also visited it and bought an avocado plant, a fig plant and a durian plant. This friend loves gardening and she has land behind her house to plant the fruit trees.
I was curious and also interested to visit the farm. We planned a trip there 2 days later and last Thursday morning, I drove to Batu Gajah where my friend stays to pick her and another friend. The 3 of us have the same interest and love for gardening. I don't know about my 2 friends but I kept telling myself not to be compulsive in buying the plants. I know my weakness so I have to keep reminding myself. Lol!
Together with my friends, I drove from Batu Gajah to Simpang Pulai with my friend directing the way. Though I have been on the same route before, I am still not very familiar when it comes to certain junction.
This is the Fig Farm with the colourful bougainvillea flowers.
Entrance to the Fig Farm. It is very near to the main road leading to Cameron Highland.
It was a bright, sunny day. And this is a very welcoming sight.
Directly opposite the Fig Farm is the Simpang Pulai Balai Bomba (Fire Station).
Most of these Fig plants are already bearing fruits.
There are many species of fig plants here.
Fig plants as low as this are fruiting.
I have to squat to take this snapshot of the figs.
Look at these! They are with fruits!
These plants are not cheap and I was very tempted.
Especially when I see all these fruits on the plants and they are fruiting even grown in pots.
Black Pepper plants are also on sale.
There are also grape plants and this one is fruiting.

Brinjal (Eggplant) seedlings, Tomato seedlings and Grape seedlings.
Healthy Fig Plants in flower pots.
My friend's Avocado plant which she bought on her first trip.
She also bought this Fig plant on her first trip.
Before sending my friends home, we had a simple Ban Mee lunch at a coffee shop diagonally opposite the Pusing town Police Station.

I didn't return home empty handed but bought the following plants from the Fig Farm.
I bought 2 Brinjal (Eggplant) seedlings.
I also bought a Petai (Stinking Bean) plant.
And finally, I bought a small Fig Plant. I was told this is the Brunswick Fig.
I especially hope to see these plants grow healthy and bear lots of fruits.
Linking to Floral Passions.
He lops off every branch that doesn't produce.
And he prunes those branches that bear fruit for even larger crops.
