The area used to be a vacant lot being rented out to a trucking company . I noticed the beehive of activities started late December 2013 and early January 2014 when i saw some trucks load of plants and gardening materials that were busy unloading their stuffs.

When i visited the old Manila Seedling Bank Foundation last December 2013. Some tenants told me that they they are looking for a place and they are still in negotiation with the lot owner in Mindanao Avenue , where they can relocate their plant and garden stalls.
Mang Victor is one of the plant stall tenants in Greenhouse # 3 within Manila Seedling Bank compound . He specializes on native plants, orchids and ornamental plants.
Ms. Vangie Go- plant stall
I saw Ms. Vangie Go at her newly re-opened store within the center. The selling area is smaller than what she used to have at the Manila Seedling Bank Foundation. She is still renovating her new place .
The big move happened on the first week of January 2014 when almost all of the tenants were forced to find a place for their plants and gardening supplies . Each plant stall is allotted around 50 to 70 square meters . It is a whole lot less space compared to what they have when they are still at the Manila Seedling Bank compound.

They are now in the process of making it to a community . Each stall specializes in a particular plants or products .
The combined area is around 3,600 square meters with around 30 stalls owners . Most of them are from Greenhouse #3 in Manila Seedling Bank hence they decided to include it in the signage.
Note: Mindanao Avenue Garden Center is also called ” Garden City ” by some of the tenants . The 200 plus tenants were relocated in different garden centers like Farmers Center, Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon Memorial Circle and Mindanao Avenue with the largest number of stall holders.
