    Clifton Nurseries

    Clifton nurseries title

    Many Moons ago I lived in a shoebox in Maida Vale! On a sunny Saturday (these can be quite rare in London) I would have lunch at the Summerhouse Restaurant on the canal and pop into Clifton Nurseries on my way back home. It was like walking into a slice of green paradise nestled in the heart of the very grand Clifton Villas. With a history dating back to 1851, it has grown over the years, offering not only plants but also garden furniture, accessories and a garden design service.

    As it’s officially Spring I wanted to share some pics from my last visit to Clifton Nurseries, I hope it inspires you to bring some colour into your garden, window sill or office desk! 🙂

    Table Makeover

    Last year we bought a new home that needed a lot of work. Once it was all decorated, we moved the cheap, functional furniture that we had collected over the years in….sigh!…
