Richmond Magazine

“The nurseries and our shop reflect our taste and how we live at home which is relatively simple, building rooms around a few good pieces and mixing contemporary and antique.”

With its fabulous foliage, battered zinc-topped tables, bare dirt floors and quirky vintage objet d’art, Petersham Nurseries is the embodiment of quintessential English country charm.Nestled by the river in a picturesque enclave of Richmond, it is also home to its green Michelin-starred café, a gourmet haunt with an organic ethos much loved by A-list celebrities, royals and locals alike.Little wonder then that when Sir David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg met for the very first time (while filming Greta’s three-part BBC documentary to discuss the future of climate change) that historic meeting took place here.
