Petersham Nurseries is fundamentally connected to nature. It is at the essence of the business, from our horticultural roots, to the seasonality of our food. We encourage positive living through consideration of the environment and draw inspiration from its beauty.
We source responsibly across all departments, from the shop to the delicatessen, florist and restaurants, upholding consideration for provenance of the goods we sell and produce we use.
We garden organically offering sustainable alternatives to pest and disease control and grow our own organic cut flowers in our onsite cutting garden
In Richmond we benefit from having our own onsite ground water source which feeds the irrigation and hoses at the nursery and keep the plants happily watered in the warmer months.
We recycle the yew trees that border our Richmond site with The Friendship Estate, which in turn supports cancer research.
Natural light to us is key. At Richmond we are predominately open during the day, flooded by natural light across the site and in our greenhouses, whilst in Covent Garden we are privileged to have a beautiful central Court Yard, bringing natural light into an inner-city location.
