Our photographer friend Jillian Leiboff recently took a trip to Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, just outside London, and sent us an account of her visit. Leiboff first heard of Petersham from resident chef Skye Gyngell, a fellow Australian (and recent recipient of a Michelin star) who runs the wildly popular Petersham Nurseries Cafe. The Petersham Nurseries is a sort of concept garden center, owned by an Italian and Australian couple who live next door in the grand Queen Anne-style Petersham House. The couple has revamped the greenhouses, added a cafe, and established a shop offering British garden essentials, goods for the home, and European antiques and Indian finds. For more information, go to Petersham Nurseries . Photography by Jillian Leiboff. Above: A white-painted brick wall with directions to the Petersham Nurseries.
