I remember finding the ‘secret’ Petersham Nurseries many years ago. Down that hardly seen driveway near Richmond. The sheer delight of going into this gorgeous place never wanes.
And now, it’s come to Londontown. In the heart of Covent Garden, the shop overflows with vintage, floral and colour. Grand Chandeliers, oversized cupboards and patterns – it is a botanical infusion.
Fresh flowers burst from their space in the deli which will tempt you in every way possible. A cacophony of perfume and choices. Pale pinks, weathered woods, candles, one feels like privileged guest at a gala and the shop is true to the beautiful nursery near the banks of the river Thames.
Covent Garden could not be a more fitting corner of London for this exquisite emporium of delights. If you are visiting London, this is a must see destination. If you live there, like I do … the giddy delight welcomes me every time I step inside the door.
