The Conservatory Garden and Home
This handsome brick building looks the kind of quaint, well-maintained place you’d expect to find a good Devonshire tea. But no – since 1975 it’s been peddling plants, gardening advice, furniture and homewares, with an emphasis on higher-end heritage brands such as William Morris and Burgon & Ball. In keeping with all this, The Conservatory is something of a specialist in topiary. More generally it has a strong catalogue of species well-suited to Adelaide’s hot, dry summers, such as lilly pilly, viburnum, azalea and gardenia.
