Abstract Pyracantha crenulata is very important species in the forest ecosystem of Uttarakhand Himalaya. Recently it has been seen that modernization and climate change drawing adverse effect on its habitat. The objective of the present investigation was to develop nursery techniques of Ghingharu Pyracantha crenulata through seed and vegetative method for mass propagation. Therefore an experiment carried out by seed sowing in different mediums sand sand soil vermiculite and different places mist chamber shade net open beds with different pre sowing treatments. Seed were presoaked in normal water for 12 hours and hot water for 12 hours. The results indicate that maximum 60 seed germination was observed after normal water soaking for 12 hours with sand soil 11 in mist chamber. The vegetative propagation was conducted with leading shoot cuttings of 2 year old seedlings originated from seed. Pretreated cuttings with different IBA treatments were planted in sand in mist chamber. The cuttings treated with IBA 5000 ppm performed maximum 74 rooting in comparison to other treatments. The IBA treatment with 4000 ppm and 6000 ppm reduced rooting percentage as 29 and 72 respectively.
