Vilmorin & Cie


Foundation of Vilmorin Andrieux

1743 marks the association of two names associated with talent came together: Philippe-Victoire de Vilmorin, whose guidelines on how to grow turnips, red clover or rape foreshadowed the future Guide Vilmorin, and Pierre d’Andrieux, a seed collector and botanist of Louis XV.

They set up the boutique of “Andrieux and Vilmorin” on the Quai de la Mégisserie in Paris (France).
