This page describes content which, while legally created, was not licensed by the Walt Disney Company. Spirou the Horticulturist (Plus fort qu'Hercule in the original French) is a comic one-pager possibly written by Rob-Vel, and drawn by either him or Luc Lafnet. It features Spirou, Entresol and M. Papillon.


Desperate to save a dying exotic potted plant he owns, Spirou goes so far as to create a new kind of chemical fertilizer, which turns out to be much, much more efficient than he intended.
