What is a botanical garden?
A botanical garden a garden which is solely for growing plants which are rare, has a medicinal and biological purpose and is in the category of endangered. The reason why botanical gardens are popular at present is because it helps scientists in their scientific researches and makes it easy for them to reach and test on any plants they want.
Build up a team of helpers.
Having a botanical garden is not as easy as we think it can be. Therefore, you need to have a team of supporters who have a knowledge about plants, their history and their breeding. The team should be fully equipped and they should have helped in researches related to plants. Have conferences and classes to educate your team about new developments and methods to preserve and grow the plants.
Make a list of things.
A botanical garden is different from a normal garden because it has a specific scientific purpose. Therefore, you need to make a list of the plants that you need to have in the garden. The plants should have diversity from one another. Make the list of plants that you need to get down, the equipment’s that you will need to maintain the specific temperatures for the plants, pesticides and weedicides, and other necessities.
Moving of the plants.
The process of moving a plant or shifting them from its original place to the botanical garden should be done with much care. This is because if any damage occurs to the roots of the plants, there are high potential of the plant to die before reaching the garden. It is essential thereby to have the specific gears to handle the plant. If they are large trees then you might have to order a large trailer such as a tripper trailer to transport the tree from one place to another without any damage.
At present the equipment’s that are required can be ordered through online. And there the right plant trailers to purchase. Get one for the garden as it will be needed even in the future.
Maintaining the botanical garden
The next task is to maintain the garden. Make sure that you place boards or charts about the way that visitors should conduct themselves in the garden. Many plants get damaged and destroyed due to the behaviour of those who come visit them. Have ‘do not touch’ signs put up in front of sensitive plants and plants which are threatened to be endangered. Have gardeners who maintain and take care of the plants by watering them time to time.
