Medicinal plants are a category of the plants that includes a specific chemical compounds in their body and are useful for multifold directions. These are also variable in their habits like herbs, shrubs, trees, climber and creepers etc. In present study there are 35 shrubs of the Medicinal and Aromatic plants were selected and introduced in Herbal Garden for their propagation as well as for ex-situ conservation. In terms of their height these are short than trees and long than herbs. These are also marked for their woody, much branched in nature and for multiple type of their growth tendency and propagation mode. Shrubs efficiently propagating by using their many kinds of the plant propagules like Seeds, Stem cuttings etc. Each part of the Medicinal and Aromatic plant used for above purpose has been prepared before their propagation such as seeds were deep in water for early germination. Underground plant parts also initiated for formation of new adventitious buds for frequently development of the new individual plants. Collect, propagated plants are further planted in the field of Herbal Garden with providing facilities required for their better growth and development. Above strategy was applied not only for their propagation but also for their ex-situ conservation in Herbal Garden.
