The roadside nurseries at L.B.Nagar are drawing huge crowds for the colourful collection and saplings that are offered at affordable rates. Spread over different indoor and outdoor plants, the collection at these small roadside outlets is turning out to be a hit amongst the people.
Plant lovers from far-flung areas visit these stalls to buy the stuff. “We bring in flowering plants from as far as Bangalore, these exotic flowering plants are usually used to decorate the medians and parks,” says Mallikarjun, a nursery owner.
The nurseries have adequate and different varieties of plants that come handy for ground as well as terrace gardens. “If we don't have it we arrange it from some other place,” says another nursery owner.
Affordability is another reason for the people to visit these nurseries rather than the ones situated in the interiors of the city. The convenience of location is another option the locals look at.
“There is a good price difference and moreover with many small nurseries around we have an advantage of selecting from a horde of stuff,” says Bhopal Reddy, a businessman.
“It is difficult to find many nurseries at one place in the city, occasionally I drive to this place and buy the requirements,” says N. Dayakar, a retired Govt. official.
