Petersham Nurseries is a little gem of Richmond. It is one of those places that makes you feel instantly fulfilled with a fresh pace of life, that being in all the gorgeous plants to look at and the sustainably sourced food produced there. It is more than just a nursery; it is a place of joy.
Petersham Nurseries pays a lot of attention to sustainability in the way they use seasonal produce, focus on locally grown ingredients, pay attention to natural pesticides and make a huge impact from recycling. Read all about their ethos here for more information. Petersham Nurseries is a place of community spirit and their staff are mainly from the local area. There is love and thought into everything they do.
Stunning Interiors And Surroundings
There is a rustic yet chic vibe of the nursery. The tables and chairs are antique style and the charm of the outdoor seating as well as inside helps the visitor become at one with nature. A short walk by the river afterwards is just what the soul needs after a spot of lunch.
The food is freshly prepared and ranges from delicious salads to homemade quiches and rustic style dishes. I can definitely recommend their food! The melt in the mouth cakes and scrumptious juices are a dream also.
The Gift Shop
If you have more time, why not buy something to remember the visit such as an ornament, card or crockery item. This is the perfect place for purchasing a more thoughtful gift for someone special.
Not In Richmond?
Richmond is not the only place Petersham Nurseries features. Covent Garden recently gained a shop, delicatessen and eatery there. It’s the perfect place to explore and take your time.
