Lendlease has announced that independent community garden brand, The Nunhead Gardener, has signed for a permanent retail space at Elephant Park.
The Nunhead Gardener first arrived at Elephant Park last year, within a kiosk as part of the meanwhile structure on Sayer Street, known as The Living Room.
Opening a refurbished unit in the Spring, The Nunhead Gardner Elephant Park will offer the brand’s array of indoor and outdoor plants, as well as its collection of bespoke gardening tools, ceramic pots, and peat-free compost.
The 900 sq ft unit, in a prominent location on the corner of Sayer Street and Heygate Street will also feature the brand’s wide array of homeware, including candles, diffusers, beauty products and handmade dining ware, with a team of knowledgeable horticulturalists on hand to offer expert advice.
Guy Thomas, head of place assets at Lendlease, said: “Lendlease has committed to providing spaces for local businesses and start-ups to grow and establish their presence, and The Nunhead Gardener is another success story of this approach.
“We initially brought the brand into a kiosk in Elephant Park to meet the growing demand from the community for plants, a very important addition given their positive impact on wellbeing. We are proud to have supported the growth of The Nunhead Gardener at Elephant Park, and to see this key community asset add yet another dimension to the destination’s high street.”
Peter Milne, a co-founder of The Nunhead Gardener, added: “With our South London roots, Elephant Park is a great location for our latest store opening. We are delighted to sit alongside such an exciting and diverse array of retailers and restaurants, we are really looking forward to continuing as part of the Elephant Park community.”
