Germination has begun in the winter flower seeds that were sown by Mukti on coco peat and vermicompost in the nursery of the Mukti Library Garden last week. Flower seedlings of 5 species (Calendula, Inka, Petunia, Inka mix and Merry Gold) have been successfully germinated by Mukti.
Mukti has bought 41,000 seeds from the Muchisa plant nursery at Amtala under Bishnupur PS of South 24 Parganas district. 50 trays filled with coco peat and vermicompost are used to germinate 6,250 shoots (125 seedlings in each tray).
In the next phase, another 34,650 seeds will be sown by Mukti. Mukti Nursery staff and supervisors are engaged in the regular care of the seedlings.
