Published by Sydney Bradley Modified 11 months ago. Agriculture began years ago and the people who lived as hunters and gatherers began to cultivate plants and domesticate animals. The concept of the nursery, where plants are propagated to be transplanted to their permanent site or to be sold has been a part of agriculture since the beginning.
The difficulty of procuring tree seeds and their rising cost makes it necessary to find means to increase seedling survival and growth. Nurseries provide the necessary control of moisture, light, soil and predators and allow production of healthy and hardy seedlings. Here are some steps to make construction of a nursery and seedling culture more successful. An ideal location would be a place near the house so that the nursery is often and well taken cared of , with good soil, near a reliable source of water and where water does not stagnate. Avoid placing the nursery or raising species in an area where existing species of the same family have pest and disease problems.
A nursery is a place where plants are propagated and grown to a desired age. They include retail nurseries which sell to the general public, wholesale nurseries which sell only to businesses such as other nurseries and to commercial gardeners , and private nurseries which supply the needs of institutions or private estates. Nurseries may supply plants for gardens, for agriculture, for forestry and for conservation biology. Some of them specialize in one phase of the process: propagation, growing out, or retail sale; or in one type of plant: e. Some produce bulk stock, whether seedlings or grafted, of particular varieties for purposes such as fruit trees for orchards, or timber trees for forestry.
