Abstract

Herbal gardens are a rich source of plant-based medicines and their derivatives. Both in urban and rural locations, herbal plants have an important role in traditional medicine. The development of herbal garden includes propagation, multiplication, research, education, and extension activities as well. In the present study, we took herbal plants from different nurseries of Noida and Greater Noida of Gautam Buddha Nagar district, Uttar Pradesh and developed herbal garden in the Galgotias University campus. The herbal garden has approximately 45 different plants, including shrubs (22), trees (13), herbs (9) and grass (1) etc. The geotagged photographs of each herbal plant were captured using GPS map camera. The ex-situ conservation of herbal garden in Galgotias University would help and motivate faculties and students of the university, to undertake further research on medicinal plants.
