Heyne's Garden Centre

Our History

The Heyne family has been proudly growing South Australia from 1869.

With a history of 150 years, we were established in 1869 by Ernst Heyne, Botanist and Horticulturist. Heyne’s Nursery is South Australia’s oldest registered nursery, located on The Parade. Each generation builds onto our proud Heyne history with lasting legacy. The story of each of our founders is here for you to read and enjoy. With our eyes to the future, we are now in our 5th generation and our story continues to grow.
