Quezon Memorial Circle Plant Center

Quezon Memorial Circle, Quezon City – Philippines

It was in 2007 when the Agri -Aqua Network International Incorporated (AANI )group was moved from their previous location near the present day Hardin ng mga Bulaklak facing East Avenue  to PHILCOA – Commonwealth area. There were about 30 stalls which sells various agriculture supplies and agriculture produce . ANNI used to have over 100 stall holders when they are still at the East Avenue entrance.

Brief History

 The additional plant stalls area facing the PhilCOA area /  Department of Agrarian Reform used to be stalls selling various kinds of merchandizes in the late 1990’s until early 2000.

the author together with some plant and orchid enthusiasts invited during the soft opening in 2009

Prior to the big move by commercial plant stall tenants from Manila Seedling Bank in 2013 , The area facing the DAR  allocated in 2008 was part of the proposed Quezon Memorial Circle Plant and Pet Center .

Dendrobium Garden circa April 2009 – space used to be rented by Mr. Dennis Sy until late 2009. The area is now being rented  by Horizon Garden of Ms. Baby Alarcon

Mindanao Fruit Test circa 2009

The center is said to rival Cartimar Pet and Garden Center in Pasay  . However the initial endeavor almost failed miserably as series of unfortunate events happened – Ondoy in 2009 which inundated some of the stalls causing massive floods and killing some plants , poor water quality which causes fish kills , poor sales among plant tenants and high overhead costs. Some of the tenants were unable to pay the rentals .

Horizon Garden circa 2013

Mr. Dennis Sy,  one of the tenants of the place defaulted in the payment of the rentals and thus some of the stalls ( rented by Mr. Dennis Sy)  were eventually taken-over by the Quezon Memorial Circle management  . I used to consign some books, reading materials and ornamental plants in some of the stalls ( that is ‘why’ i know most of the tenants until 2010)  , Some of the tenants were not able to pay me the consignments items , so i decided to pull-out all the items and relocated them somewhere in Metro Manila.

Blooms and Greens

There was a Thai inspired plant stall located a few meters away . Which used to sell a lot of orchids and ornamental plants. But when i visited the place, they are selling few plants and almost no flowering orchids. I just wonder what happened to the nicely landscaped plant stall.

Dels’ Garden

When most of the plant , orchid , cactus , agriculture  pet and fish shows were held within Quezon Memorial Circle in 2011 . The area gradually pick -up sales from the visitors .

Kings Garden

( This commercial space used to be rented by a pet and koi store until early 2010 )

Additional plant stalls were added mid-2012 as rumors of the eventual closure of the Manila Seedling Bank and the need for more greenness within the area. Some plant stall owners got 2 to 5 stalls , they decided to get some stalls because the space is small compared to their former location.

Evergreen Garden

Evergreen Garden specializes in ornamental plants, orchids, plastic pots , gardening tools . The proprietor had a farm in Batangas

King Louis Ornamental Farm

There were additional 20 to 30 stalls currently being constructed in the adjacent area. They are expecting more tenants to relocate within the circle .

Thesis Writing students , please pay them a visit – I am not an extension office of these plant stalls . When we did our thesis writing in business , we have to personally go to the concerned government agencies or private individuals .
