1. Production of Genetically Pure Nursery Stock Genetically pure planting material is essential for healthy and vigorous plant growth. Both stock and scion should be genetically pure. The planting material should be satisfactory in quantity and quality and easily available for further multiplication. 2. Export of Nursery Stock. The most traditional approach to inventorying the plant diversity of a given area - e.g. a bog, a nature reserve or a province - consists of the preparation of floristic lists, also known as floras. The term 'flora' has been variously defined, but here we follow Lawrence (): “the inventory of all the plant species recorded for a given. a good planting programme, good nursery stock is essential. Major causes of seedling mortality on-farm include the wrong size or poor health of the seedlings at the time of planting or poor health of the seedlings at the time of planting. Poor seedlings are likely .   The size of homegardens in WJA ranged between m 2 -5, m 2 while homegardens in LMA had a narrower size range, which were m 2 -3,m 2.

at the Big Flats Plant Materials Center in Corning, New York. The RPM trees were supplied by the Cornell Horticulture facility in Dryden, NY and the 1-yr old bareroot and 2-year old containerized plants were from Octoraro Nursery in Oxford, PA. The field, prior to planting, was a perennial pea production field which was removed in Transplants for the planting of new forests and the restocking of harvested areas in existing forests are grown in forest nurseries. Today some 40 million transplants are required for the annual planting programme and most of these are produced in two main Irish nurseries – Coillte and Non-So-Hardy Nurseries, with the rest being provided by a number of smaller producers and imports from abroad. 4 Methods of sowing seed i) Broadcasting: This is the method of spreading seed on top of the SSM, either by hand or a mechanical broadcast. This mainly applies to small sized seeds. ii) Drill -sowing: Is the method of making ruts or drills in the SSM into which seeds are .   Containers: Nurseries must have ample resources to grow seedlings and plants. Plant Nursery Soil Media: For successful germination of seeds and plant growth proper soil mix must be ready and maintained in the ngs must have great medium for rooting, nutrient supply, and firm to hold the seedling. The nursery must have sufficient stock of sand, red or black soil, sphagnum mass.

method gives up some accuracy for less time, and uses information that most nurserymen already have. With the rental approach, nursery growing space is rented to plants. It might be helpful to picture yourself as a hotel manager, With guests (plants) using your rooms (nursery space). The problem is to determine how much each guest is costing. Dividing a plot into smaller subplots is an excellent strategy, especially if the plants you are inventorying are smaller than trees. Liz Johnson, Manager of Metropolitan Biodiversity Programs at the American Museum of Natural History’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, typically inventories acre plots, so subdividing is. Mechanised planting of containerised stock is possible using a special head on the mounding machine but, as containerised plants only account for a small proportion of the annual planting programme, it is not widely practiced. There are three basic methods commonly used to manually plant forest trees. In contrast, transplanting, sometimes called replanting, is a method of planting that only requires the use of pre-grown plants, or seedlings, or vegetatively propagated clones for field planting. It does not distinguish as to the source of the planting material, that is, whether from seed or from vegetative parts of plants.
