London garden centres offer an oasis of greenery, fresh air and quiet for stressed out city-dwellers. We search out the five best for keen gardeners or those who just need to detox from the concrete jungle and chill in a leafy café.

Petersham Nurseries, Richmond

Petersham Nurseries in Richmond is so much more than a garden centre. Although built around the nursery that owners Gael and Francesco Boglione bought back in 1999, Petersham has evolved into a small empire, including restaurants, antiques, interiors, farming and even theatre. Set in the grounds of Petersham House, the original Richmond location is a glorious place for exploring and relaxing throughout the year.

Recently refurbished by the owners of The Chelsea Gardener, The Palace Gardener aims to meet the specific horticultural needs of local Fulham residents. As well as a beautiful selection of indoor and outdoor plants and all the accessories you'll need, the café serves a mean latte and provides a bright, relaxing space whatever the weather.
