Forest Nursery Introduction To Nursery And Objective Of Nursery

A poorly constructed and managed nursery bed will lead to poor germination or diseased seedlings. While one batch is maturing in the main garden, seeds may be sown in the nursery bed, producing plants ready for transplant at the time that the first crop is exhausted. Measure 1m wide of any convenient length, dig it well at least to a depth of 0.3-0.45m so that stones and roots lying underneath are dug out and thrown outside the nursery.

The beds should be prepared in the east and west direction and line should be made from north to south direction on the beds. Here I share a few ideas about natural, simple nursery establishment and protocols. Adaptation of plant protection measures in the nursery against the incidence of insect pest and diseases is very important task to get the healthy seedlings.

Better care of younger plants as it is easy to look after nursery in small area against pathogenic infection, pests and weeds. Working on contour, and/or creating level areas for the beds to sit will also go a long way toward water retention and ease of access/maintenance.

The nursery beds require light irrigation with the help of rose can till the seeds get germinated. As is the typical permaculture orientation, you can think of your nursery areas in terms of layers, communities and functional interconnectivity. A nursery bed is especially helpful for vegetable gardeners practicing succession planting, in which a steady supply of fresh produce is maintained by staggering the planting of seeds.

Vegetables such as cabbages, onions, tomatoes, eggplants are best raised in the nursery bed. If the disease appear after the seed emergence drench the nursery beds with 0.1% solution of brassicol or 0.7% captan or thiram after germination. It also helps in watching the diseased and insect pest attacked plants while moving around the nursery.
