They kept Norfolk growing from their town centre HQ long before the out of town garden centres came along.
Now a once familiar seed merchant is set to be commemorated with a special exhibition.
R&A Taylor operated for generations on King's Lynn's Norfolk Street for generations.
Its listed premises, near the junction of the High Street, is now home to a branch of the Entertainer toy chain.
Some of Taylor's seeds and other items were passed to Lynn Museum after the business closed in 1982.
