Pesticides will be banned in all public green spaces from Sunday (January 1 2017) while non-professional gardeners will no longer be able to buy pesticides over the counter.
The new measure is part of a larger green program adopted by French lawmakers that also includes a ban on plastic bags for vegetables.
