Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, Surrey

Richmond is a really nice day trip for those visiting or living in London, particularly because the wonderful Petersham Nurseries is just a short detour from the river Thames and a visit is worthwhile even if you’re not purchasing plants.  They have a Michelin star awarded restaurant and a low key teahouse – I have yet to eat at the restaurant but every dish I have had from the teahouse has been delicious. We went for lunch (at the teahouse) on Sunday with a relative visiting from New Zealand and it was very sunny and very, very hot and a bit of a respite from the busy river’s edge.

  1. Stunning pics, beautiful herbs. I just retencly started growing herbs this summer. They all did well except for the lavendar, which was the only herb that was completely and utterly annihilated by insects. Why? Why? My writing partner wrote a nice piece & recipe about using lavandar w/chicken on our site: ( might like it. Thanks for the great read.
