We used to get a ton of calls from green thumbs and potential gardeners out there who wanted to know when the flower market at Battaramulla is; and we finally got solid details (except for the phone number, sorry).
The white tents pitched along Water's Edge are in full bloom thrice a week, from just past sun-up to near midnight, what with flower/ plant vendors and landscape artists rooting themselves there from Friday to Sunday.
Nice aunties at the stalls told me that the market opens up at around 8:00 in the morning, and goes on well until 11 PM in most cases. It's unlikely that you'll miss them unless you're there past midnight for some reason.
You get practically all types of plants, including budded plants, succulents, spices, flowers, and even carpets of grass should you want to smoothen your lawn out.
You can check our gallery out for more pictures, or better yet, just head over there yourselves.
The plant market at Battaramulla runs from Friday to Sunday, from early morning to about 10 or 11 PM.
