Spring ideas for urban gardening

Not only in gardens but also on balconies and patios, urban gardening is currently very popular. It is possible to experiment with new varieties by purchasing local seeds or organic seedlings, with many varieties dating back many years. Where to find seedlings and advice?

Printemps - plantons

Seedling markets are now authorised to open for business, in accordance with the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), which means that people can once again turn their attention to gardening. Social distancing and hygiene rules (shared tools, etc.) must be respected, in particular in the case of markets and shared gardens, with a view to limiting the spread of the new coronavirus. 

Seedling markets

Organic seedlings taken from local and/or old varieties of plant. Order from les Artichauts online market until 6 June 2020. You can then pick up your seedlings on site from the Beaulieu market (Parc de Beaulieu greenhouses, Rue Baulacre 3) or the Belle-Idée market (Belle-Idée greenhouses, Chemin du Petit-Bel-Air 2). These markets are open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
