Abstract: Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii H. Bolus ex Hook. f.) a temperate crop, distributed in the temperate Himalayas from Kashmir to Nepal at altitudes of 13,00 to 32,00 m. It is very difficult to grow this temperate crop in sub-tropical climate of Lucknow. Organogenic cultures were established from immature flower heads on modified MS medium supplemented with IAA and BA. Regenerated shoots were rooted on growth regulator-free medium. Rooted shoots were hardened during July-August and transferred to field conditions, where they grew well and produced flowers within 6-8 months.
