Acorn Nursery

Over the last 35 years, this Surrey Hills nursery has become a one-stop shop for garden supplies and gifts.

We probably don't need to tell the locals about this one, as Acorn Nursery is a bit of an institution in the eastern suburbs. It's been around since 1985, and is now a go-to plant and garden centre complete with a gift shop and cafe. Alongside everything you need to make your garden pop (including seedlings, soil and fertilisers, pots, garden furniture and ornaments), the gift shop has such a wide range that it's probably possible to knock off your entire Christmas present shopping list in one go. There's clothing, homewares, jewellery, bags, lotions, raw honey, toys, books, candles and gift cards to top it off. Celebrate your purchases with a cuppa or a cheeky glass of wine at The Oaks Cafe.
