Fawn over the Flora at Petersham Nurseries Covent Garden

The elegant, natural universe of Petersham Nurseries has found a second home in Covent Garden, bringing together its home and garden shop, a deli, wine cellar and florist. A garden oasis in the heart of London, for lovers of nature and design, along with great food.

Opened in a Grade II listed building with three stunning atrium windows, Petersham Nurseries has found the ideal setting for their new home. The shop offers an eclectic mix of curated gifts, furniture and homeware, from chandeliers to hand-painted linens and glassware, offered up in the inimitable Petersham style….shabby chic at its best.

The shop offers up a nursery, of course, with products focussed on urban gardening, small city gardens, window boxes and container gardens. Lack a green thumb? A potting service is on offer for doing window boxes to take home. And the florist stocks imaginative and magical bouquets and posies, to purchase from the shop or online, the focus being on seasonal, British-grown flowers. Impossible to go home empty handed!

The on-site deli stays true to the owners Italian roots, sourcing artisanal ingredients and seasonal fruit and veg, along with fresh pasta made daily. Fab take home and foodie gifts are on hand too, including Petersham’s own line of jams, honey, cheese, fresh pasta, and Italian style sandwiches. And the don’t forget the wine cellar, which carries a carefully-selected collection of fine Italian wines.

Coming in early 2018: an elegant restaurant, The Petersham, and an informal bar serving small plates, La Goccia. Both will offer outdoor dining in the Floral Court.
