Located in a residential area in Putuo District, this huge market is incredibly well organised: flower pots are nicely arranged and prices are hand written on pieces of cardboard with plant names, origins and tips for maintenance. What makes it well worth a trip is that many shops specialise in one type of plant (orchids, miniature bonsais or peonies, for example), giving the feeling that vendors know and love what they do here.
