#We took our time over the slow food (which ar­rived re­mark­ably swiftly) in eas­ily the hippest gar­den-cen­tre restau­rant in the land. With bougainvil­lea and jas­mine swirling over­head and ec­cen­tric english gar­den chic dé­cor, there was plenty of al­fresco at­mo­sphere to soak up. All the in­gre­di­ents, from the broad beans to the as­para­gus are grown in the walled gar­den or in the Dorset farm of the Boglione fam­ily, own­ers of Peter­sham House.

#We HADN’T re­alised that the iconic venue was also open on se­lected evenings over the sum­mer fora se­ries of can­dle lit sup­per clubs. # We’ve Al­ready Booked for ox­ford­shire’s Wilder­ness fes­ti­val,3-6au­gust, the grown-up fes­ti­val for no­mads and gas­tronomes, rock­ers and roamers, where Peter­sham is head­lin­ing on the food front with a feast­ing menu com­pris­ing de­lights such as cour­gette shav­ings, pea shoots, bu­ratta and basil and zisola olive oil.

# We stocked up on more than just bed­ding plants, tak­ing home a bas­ket load of room fra­grances, plain white china, vin­tage glass­ware and a crys­tal chan­de­lier.

#We checked out the new out­shoot in covent Gar­den and picked up a few treats from the florist, wine cel­lar, del­i­cates­san and homes

and gar­den store. (pe­ter­sham­nurs­eries.com)
