About Us

Alexandra Nurseries was founded in 2012 by landscape gardener John Parker and is now run by his son Owen Parker. It is an independently owned Garden Centre and Café based in Penge, South East London. Operating from what was originally the Estate House for the tenants of the surrounding Victorian cottages, it has developed over the years to house an eclectic and carefully selected range of indoor and outdoor plants, pots, gifts, vintage and salvage. The café serves cakes made by local bakers and coffee sourced from around the corner in Penge.

Sourcing many of its plants and products from within the UK or local suppliers, Alexandra Nurseries works to keep its carbon footprint as small as possible. The products it stocks ethically and responsibly produced. Seeking out small, creative suppliers ensures an unusual, diverse and quality range of products that is ever changing.
