Glasshouse to get more effulgence

Special Correspondent

Udhagamandalam: To ensure that tourists who visited the Government Botanical Garden here during the `off-season' period do not return disappointed, the authorities have evolved a plan to make the glasshouse, which is a prominent feature of the garden, more attractive.

The manager of the garden, N. Mani told The Hindu here today that the flowers inside the glasshouse would be changed regularly. This would make the glasshouse look fresh throughout the year.

To begin with, lisianthus flowers in different colours grown in the nursery of the garden had been brought to the glasshouse a couple of days ago. They were expected to stay abloom for about ten days. To ensure the success of the programme, staggered sowing of seeds in the nursery was being resorted to, he said adding that among the flowers which would be enriching the glass house over the next few weeks would be cyclamen, tuberius begonia, freesia and schizathes.
