The Greenhouses

Vous êtes à Genève et c’est Bali, l’Amazonie, les côtes de l’Orénoque qui défilent sous vos yeux. Le Jardin botanique, un endroit magique, maternant. Allez vous y enfermer avec Rimbaud, Hölderlin ou Hergé. L’émotion est garantie" (L’Express du 25-31 mai 2006)

When visiting the greenhouses of the CJB, you will feel yourself transported far from Geneva and you may be surprised, in particular, by the ambient heat and the humidity of our tropical greenhouses.
In these exotic surroundings, amongst plants of unexpected shapes or with iridescent and delicate colours, you may have an irresistible dream of voyaging for a long time...
These plant species derived from the different continents all have something in common: in order to survive and prosper in our local climate they need protection, under glass, for all or part of the year.

The hidden side of the greenhouses re-groups the greenhouses for the collections and the experimental greenhouses that hold the plants of scientific interest or those that are cultivated experimentally. These can be visited only upon request.

The greenhouses at Pregny, annexed to those of the Botanical Garden, contain certain specific collections, the sector which produces the plants for use in the main collection of flowerbeds and for the decoration of the park, an Orangery for the over-wintering of exotic shrubs that are not frost resistant, as well as a collection of ancient varieties of fruit trees, inherited from the former owner, Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
