London's former Fulham Palace Garden Centre to relaunch next week with cafe

The former Fulham Palace Garden Centre in London will, after a period of refurbishment, be re-opening on 14 March as The Palace Gardener at Fulham Palace.

The Palace Gardener is owned by Bypass Nurseries.

The centre will be overseen by the same team that manages The Chelsea Gardener on Sydney Street SW3 which has been trading since 1984, with the addition of Jorge Rodriguez.

Within The Palace Gardener there will be a new Glasshouse Café that will serve "fresh, simple, quality dishes" through out the day from homemade granola to "freshly made focaccia sandwiches and healthy salads, daily chef specials and a great kids menu". In the summer there will be outside seating.

Fulham Palace Garden Centre was owned by the Prince's Trust, which shut the centre in 2014 after taking it over from Fairbridge Trust in 2011. The Church Commissioners had the site in the interim.

There will be an official launch party on 27 April.
