Background of the Nursery

The concept of this nursery came to the mind of R.D. Yadav, the President of this organization in 2010 when his mother bought 2 coniferous plants and brought them home for planting them within the premises of a school that lies in the rural area of Parsa district of Nepal. She kept hose plants on the roof top of her house in Kirtipur. In the mean time the President observed the characteristics of those coniferous plants his mother had brought. He brought some small plastic bags and started to cut the branches and put them into the bags filled with soil he also covered the plants with plastic as it was winter . After 20 days there was the result .He was 70% successful in his testing and he was so much impressed with the result that he started to imaging that all the schools should have their own beautiful garden and his organization will play a leading role in Greening them.

After his successful testing, he discussed on the concept of nursery with the team members of RDC Nepal and a small unused land of Ms Kamala Gyawali, the Treasurer of this organization, was selected as a site for nursery establishment where a small shed of 18×30ft. was built. The president, along with the team, worked very hard and within 4 months the nursery raised 1000 plants and there was no more space of producing more plats. The plants produced in that nursery were plated in Nepal Rastriya Madhyamic Viddhyalaya, a community school of Parsa district for the first time by landscape designing and the gardens was made scientifically. Now, the garden attracts teachers’ pupils and the community members and RDC Nepal has built several gardens and parks at community level in different districts of Nepal since then.

Now, the plant Nursery of RDC Nepal is situated in Maitrinagar Ward No. 2 Kirtipur Municipality of Kathmandu district in 4 ropanies of land on rent where 100 species of ornamental plants, flower, fruits, medicinal plants and fodders are produced.
In the nursery, many plastic sheds are built for the propagation and storage of plants there recently cut plants are put in small sized plastic bags and stored in closed sheds controlling the appropriate temperature under intensive care. It has a separate shed for germinating seeds where seeds are kept in small boxes and ported in the small shed under the intensive care whet the seedling grow upto 2-3 inches they are transferred to the small sized plastic bags. After the seedlings grow up to 1ft tall they are again transferred to medium size of plastic bags measuring 3×7 inches and they are kept in open space unit (they grow upto 3-6ft) tall. Generally RDC Nepal carries the plants for making parks or gardens after they measure 3-6 ft. tall.
