At Petersham Nurseries we have begun prepping for the festive season, where we have a whole new series of exciting events and inspiring workshops to experience. The floristry style at Petersham Nurseries is renowned for its dramatic, wild and impressive arrangements; we carry this through into our Christmas floristry. Our horticulture and floristry team have put together a series of hands-on workshops to make your homes ready for the festive season. We will be using sustainable floristry techniques in line with our ethos, enabling you to create a design that is completely biodegradable and compostable.
