Petersham Nurseries – the Surrey-based garden centre renowned for its Michelin-starred food offer – has opened a new branch in London’s Covent Garden.

Petersham Nurseries has opened the first element of a new site in Covent Garden, including a lifestyle, home and garden shop as well as a delicatessen.

The new site on King Street, Covent Garden and will cover 16,000 sq ft in total, once two new restaurants, bar and courtyard are added next year. 

True to the horticultural origins of the family business, its aim is to bring “nature and elegance” to the heart of London with an “unparalleled lifestyle destination” – or to bring the ‘garden’ back to Covent Garden.
