Petersham Nurseries : Lifestyle Emporium

Petersham Nurseries

It’s summer at Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden, London where the days are relaxed and easy in the garden, enjoying all of the botanical delights this time of year. It’s also such a pleasure to take a respite in this beautiful store whilst strolling around town, taking in all the inspiration from the curated homewares amongst the plants and lifestyle furnishings…with an open breeze leading out to the outdoor terrace and cafe, you can dream away in here, leaving the world behind for a while.
