Philosophy and Ethos

‘Petersham Nurseries has created a place of calm where you can reconnect with nature, restoring a sense of balance and space. By celebrating aspects of the home, garden and food, we offer a destination that encourages you to step back and embrace a lifestyle of positive living.’ Lara Boglione
PETERSHAM NURSERIES IS NATURAL

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.

PETERSHAM NURSERIES IS THOUGHTFUL

Petersham Nurseries is proudly local, homegrown and part of the surrounding community. We care about our staff, who have become an extended family, whilst maintaining strong relationships with neighbours and treating customers the way we would treat guests in our own home. We support various charities and initiatives, both locally and abroad.

PETERSHAM NURSERIES IS RESPECTFUL

This is demonstrated in many aspects of our daily routine from the family owned and run organic farm, the Slow Food and Flower ethos upon which our menus are based and plants are grown, to reducing waste and encouraging recycling within the business. We aim to have a minimal impact on the environment. Supporting organisations such as the Marine Conservation Society and Farms Not Factories, our sourcing ethos inspires the buyers and chefs who are respectful of the produce they work with and appreciate its exceptional quality.

PETERSHAM NURSERIES IS NURTURING

The Petersham Nurseries team enjoy sharing our knowledge and wisdom. Nurturing our staff and inviting them into the Petersham family. Nourishing relationships with customers and suppliers alike. We endeavour to keep learning, regularly sharing our wealth of experience through the School of Garden Inspiration and culinary workshops.

PETERSHAM NURSERIES IS VISIONARY

Stepping into the world of Petersham Nurseries is to experience something unique. A destination like no other which stretches boundaries in what is created, sourced and served. Exciting senses and provoking thought; a place of aspiration and inspiration.

“A place of beauty, an emporium of goods and a celebration of the seasons.”
