Gardens Illustrated

“Mismatched table and chairs, perfectly placed beneath a floriferous Rosa multiflora ‘Grevillei’, epitomise the glorious shabby-chic style of Petersham Nurseries celebrated in a new book.”

The styling of the nursery is gorgeous, and is captured in lavish, moody, atmospheric style by Andrew Montgomery, the perfect photographer for such a subject. Here are old glasshouses hung with chandeliers and dripping with ferns, there artfully mismatched chairs alongside zinc-topped tables groaning with displays of seasonal flowers, and a vase of voluptuously fading tulips, surely captured in the moment before the first petal fell: beautiful food, beautiful plants and beautiful people.
