  Planting out and transplanting:
 

 

Planting out of seedling should be carried out directly in the plantations when they are ready.


 
Planting out of seedling should be carried out directly in the plantations when they are ready. In order to induce plants to develop compact a bushy root system instead of long taproots, they should be transplanted from one part of the nursery to other.

Plant containers:

The plants that cannot be planted out with naked roots are planted out with a ball of soil around its roots.

Various kinds of containers, in use, for this purpose, include:

  • Dona – i.e. a cup made of leaves. They may be made of leaves of Maljhan, Bargad, Sal.

  • Moss cylinders and fibre cubes – cylindrical tubes of moss, about 15 cms in length and 5-8cms in diameter are used. They are filled with nursery soil and the seedlings are transplanted in them.

  • Baskets – they are made of bamboo strips or Laljhau.

  • Tubes – they are made of earthen tiles, bamboo paper, tin or Bhujapatra bark.

  • Earthen pots – such pots are relatively costly and heavier to transport.

  • Polythene bags – they are light weight, cheap and durable. For aeration and drainage they need to be perforated. Usually polythene bags of the gauge 150,200 or 250 are used in forest nurseries.
