Heyne’s Garden Centre
We can’t say for certain, but Heyne’s, founded by notable German botanist Ernst Bernhard Heyne in 1869, would have to the oldest nursery in the country. That’s a lot of intergenerational know-how – five generations’ worth, in fact. The staff shares its accumulated knowledge at regular workshops, and through downloadable house-made fact-sheets on growing veggies at home, dealing with pests and other common gardening topics. The nursery sells a certain amount of plants online, but we’d recommend visiting in person for the full experience. There are seeds, seedlings, fruit trees, cacti, pots, statues, flowers and more.
