A 3 year search led us to this long and luscious site,with its 2 tiny entrances – one on Battersea Park Road just next to Sainsbury’s and the Bike Cafe, and the other at 16 Winders Road. The site was closed off for over 30 years, but since we opened in December 2012, we’ve discovered it used to be where the horses from Battersea Park were kept, and before that where the barrows from the market on Battersea High Street were stored, and before that, a long time ago… there was a flower shop at the Battersea Park Road entrance!
The welcome we’ve had from local people has been wonderful, and we hope we’re a cherished additional to Battersea. All of our team are local to Wandsworth, and we want to support local producers – whether that’s local jam makers or artists… if you create lovely things, get in touch and we’ll see how we can work together to stock your products.
We’re constantly improving our offering, so tell us your ideas, we’re all ears. We offer local delivery, whether it’s a few bags of compost, a bouquet of flowers, or a huge olive tree and pot for your garden or balcony. We recently invested in a greenhouse so now we can stock a wider range of houseplants. You said you couldn’t carry heavy bags of compost, and you only needed a little bit, so we offer compost by the scoop (20p!). Any other ideas you have, we’re all ears!
