BANGALORE: The Nurserymen Co-operative Society is organising a nursery mela at Lalbagh Glass House to celebrate the golden jubilee of the society.

The 3-day mela, which will be held from Friday, will showcase more than 100 varieties of plants, including ornamental flowering plants. A replica of monuments at Hampi has been reconstructed and will be decorated with flowers and plants. As many as 40 stalls will be set up by the members of the society.

Various exotic plants have been sourced from outside the country for the event. 

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will inaugurate the event on Friday morning. Sharing his experience with reporters, M Seetharam, a fifth generation nurseryman, said, “The society, which is located within the Lalbagh premises, has helped hundreds of people who own nurseries to ensure that they are able to market their produce.”

However, he mentioned that with increasing urbanisation, a lot has changed for them over the past five decades.

H S Shivakumar, Additional Director of Horticulture Department, said, “The production technology which involves cutting and pruning has improved drastically over the past five decades. The variety of plants and pot varieties have improved as well.”
