The Standard Nursery (TSN) was established in 1973. It is located north of downtown Kathmandu, at Bansbari. Over the period, it has grown to be one of the largest nurseries in Nepal. The nursery occupies about 2 hectare of land with 29000 sq. ft. of greenhouse covered area and 10,000 sq. ft. of shade covered area. The nursery at its inception began with the traditional flowering plants, including house and perennial garden plants such as rose, gardenia, azalea, etc. and annuals.
The nursery has been done a significant effort for last thirty years to bring about modern changes in the floriculture sector with the cooperation of professional and non professional individuals.
TSN began diversifying its activity into various new crop production such as Carnation and Rose for cut flower verity. It began producing Chrysanthemum, Poinsettias, and Azaleas prior to the commencement of normal flowering season. As part of the diversification of the business, it established a trading company mandated to import hybrid flower and vegetable seeds to fulfill the TSN requirement as well as distribute to other nurseries in the valley. TSN requires about Rs. 200,000 worth of seasonal seeds per year. There are 200 registered nurseries in Kathmandu alone. It was not justified to import the seeds for TSN consumption only since it is very small quantity for the seed companies to supply such small quantities. In order to make it justifiable quantity, the seed orders were collected from other local nurseries as well. The total quantity of seeds import was worth Rs. 5.0 million and would include TSN requirements. The seeds were imported form Hollend , UK, France, USA, and Japan.
TSN also organi7ing Open House Exhibition annually, in which it gave opportunity to introduce new verities of annuals of the potential customers by means of


demonstration field trials. It also participated in major trade fairs held in Kathmandu and other towns in Nepal. The flower market began to grow since 1995. Hence, it was felt that support facilities were necessary to produce quality and innovative products to serve the emerging market. It was felt that marketing innovative products were the only way to avoid competition. This led TSN to decide on the expansion of nursery. As part of the expansion of overall nursery business, TSN developed nursery related library, both electronic and books. The nursery office has access to all modern communication facilities, including internet, email, fax, telephones etc. It also has very good access with USA based university professors for technical help when necessary. TSN is meticulous in using necessary inputs for the plants.
