Petersham Nurseries – gardening in style

{Richmond}: frequently my escapes from the city have as a destination Richmond. I have previously documented  here and here  my day trip to Richmond which represents a real treat for the eyes and the senses since the nature’s burst of brilliant colours  burst out  whilst the  fascinating landscape provide plenty of inspiration. On one of my last trip I have discovered a fascinating place where I promised myself I had to  return to, since I thought there would have been plenty to discover. Well, it was certainly the case, when on Sunday  the world of Petersham Nurseries unfolded under my astonished eyes, every corner was beautifully styled, every little piece of merchandise carefully selected  and the old glasshouses contained it all in style.
