Sometimes you just can’t help but want to tell everyone about a place you’ve been too (even though there’s a small part of you wants to keep it quiet so you can have it all to yourself!)
Petersham Nurseries is one of those places.
Introduced on their website as an ‘Internationally prized garden centre, Petersham Nurseries is a tranquil oasis and seedbed of inspiration’ and that’s a very accurate description.
Aside from the beautiful nurseries themselves, it’s worth a visit just for the food!
In both the Café (serving lunch with a menu inspired by the seasons and what is growing in the garden at the time) and the Teahouse (serving lunch and my favourite… homemade cakes!) its divine.
You can’t help but be inspired to go home and ‘get growing’, be it flowers or plants of the more edible variety; a day out that inspires you is always a good thing in my book.
And what I really love about this place is they care about everything that they do, and it all looks so… well… pretty! From the vintage pots to the rustic furnishings… and did I mention the cakes! Worth a trip on those grounds alone…
