Gardening Lausanne

Hello all,
Does anyone know where the gardening shops are, near or in Lausanne? I'm looking to buy plants and accessories (watering cans, fertilisers etc), and I'm not really sure where to go! Any advice much appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Gardening Lausanne

You can go to Jumbo in Lausanne (near crissier), they have a selection - also there is a wonderful garden centre in Morges - (i cant remember the name)

Re: Gardening Lausanne

Much much nicer is Schilliger in Aubonne, but not cheap.

Re: Gardening Lausanne

OBI in Chavannes-pres-Renens is a fine option. Great for home DIY supplies too. Reachable by metro M1 line as well.

Re: Gardening Lausanne

Both the Coop & the Migros in Crissier have gardening sections and even some of the smaller Coops & Migros also have plants including the Coop City downtown. Across the street diagonally from the Coop City was a flower shop that will have displays outside soon if they don't already have them.

Re: Gardening Lausanne

For us, we like going to Andre Fleurs, www.andrefleurs.ch.
They open every day including Sundays and it is not far from Lausanne. Vast selection from plants to gardening tools and even courses (in French).

Re: Gardening Lausanne

Garden Centre Burnier, La Conversion - 021.791.2836.
Garden Centre Charmoy - La Croix (above Lutry) 021.796.6910
They're both very good and have excellent plants.
Burnier is smaller and less of a commercial enterprise.

Re: Gardening Lausanne

I agree with the above (Burnier, etc.). That is where I have been spending all my money!! 3 of my swiss neighbors prefer Burnier. Great selection of plants, herbs, veggies, tools, indoor plants, planter boxes, shrubs, etc. And really cool birds spread about. We went as a family yesterday (hubbie, myself, 12, 10 and 7 yo) and all had fun getting the birds to interact with us!

Re: Gardening Lausanne

Landi, Landi, Landi -- you can google for the nearest next to you. I got my soil, tools, fertilizer, plants-- cheap. My tomatoes and herbs and other plants are doing better than the ones I bought at Hornbach and Jumbo.
