If you ever wondered where all the plants for roads, institutions, and government’s initiative Haritha Haaram came from, then here’s the secret. One of the oldest nurseries of Hyderabad, Ameerpet Central Nursery is the place where the saplings for the public and government are raised.

On average, it gives out about 1 lakh saplings throughout the year. Set in 4 acres of land, the sprawling nursery has about 80 species and is maintained by Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA). The nursery itself is located inside the Government Mental Health Centre in Erragadda.

As per the officials, the saplings from here are used to line up roads and streets, at the ORR and major thoroughfares and some are given for institutional plantation. The smaller saplings are given away to the public for free.

Started in 1986, the nursery has been supplying various plants through the years. Right now, the nursery sees high demand during the Haritha Haaram program. Though initially, the nursery was spread over 9 acres, right now, the rest of the land is under litigation.

Forest species and those meant for ornamental and avenue plantation are grown here and saplings from a couple of inches to several feet high can be found here. Fruit plants, fruit plants, shade-giving plants, and garden plants are among the ones that are available here.

The nursery works round the year and soon it will be ready to supply 1 lakh saplings needed for Haritha Haaram. The rare species here include Sita Ashoka, Maredu, and Raavi. Ashoka is special as it is considered sacred throughout the country.

Tellapur nursery is another major nursery maintained by HMDA. It is spread over 40 acres and is the biggest supplier of saplings for Haritha Haaram. It is one among the 32 nurseries maintained by HMDA.

The plants and saplings raised here are 70 lakh and it makes the nursery special. Some of the interesting species raised here include Areca palms, Tellavajram, Ficus Benegalensis, Raavi, Chinna badam, thani, and ippa, to name a few.
