Peters took our a lease on the derelict wharf and a house on Ballast Quay in 1963. Here she created a communal riverside garden from which grew a landscape business, Union Wharf Nursery Garden. Projects included: gardens at St. Katherine's Wharf and the founding of the Surrey Docks Farm, about which she wrote a book: Docklandscape, 1979.
