In 1997, Gael Boglione and her husband Francesco moved their young family from central London to Richmond. Their new home, Petersham House, overlooked a local plant nursery, which had been carved out of the grounds of their Queen Anne home in the 1970s. In 2004, after extensive restoration works, the nursery re-opened, completely transformed. Furniture, gifts and antiques were found amongst the plants which adorned the greenhouses, and in the most elegant wooden teahouse. Over the years the family have steadily nurtured the space in to a beloved lifestyle destination, reflective of their values, love of food and personal collections within their home. Now Petersham’s next generation are stepping forward, forging a future for the nurseries with Petersham offshoots including a new base in Covent Garden. In this film we speak with the women of Petersham, Gael, her eldest daughter Lara, and her youngest daughter Ruby.
