First Rose Garden in Mumbai

Mumbaiites (india) starved of space for greenery on Monday received a precious gift in myriad colours and fragrances—a garden dedicated to roses.

The garden—it is the first of its kind in the city—spread over 1,000 sq mt in the premises of Nehru Science Centre (NSC) at Worli, was inaugurated by Vice-Chancellor, University of Mumbai, A D Sawant, who is also the president of Mumbai Rose Society (MRS).

Three hundred and twenty plants of 50 rose varieties have already been planted and form a riot of colours. ‘‘I thought of a rose garden for our city after visiting similar gardens in Hyderabad and Bangalore last year,’’ said Rajendra Aggarwal, president of Rotary Club of Bombay Queen City, that will provide the funds for the maintenance of the garden.

‘‘Since then, we started working towards mobilising funds and getting this land. We worked very hard to restore this land, which had been lying barren and now, our efforts have paid off,’’ he added.

The Rotary Club has spent Rs 60,000 on the garden since February and the expertise for planting and nurturing the plants is being provided by the MRS. ‘‘There will be miniature ‘button’ roses—those with petals of more than one colour—and plants with more than one colour of flowers. The garden will be a real treat for the city,’’ said Dr Vidyadar Ogale, President MRS, formerly head of the Landscape Department at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre. Others involved with the project shared his enthusiasm.

‘‘This popular flower will attract thousands to the garden. We will improve it further in the next few months and after the rains, we will sow even more hybrid varieties that will be in bloom throughout the year,’’ said Padmakar Nandakar, director, Rotary Club. The garden is open to visitors on all days between 10 am and 6 pm. Reference.
