Hello Christopher,
The best methods are atomic adsorption or ICP (induction coupled 
plasma).

But, they may not come cheap and the biggest problem you have to sort 
out is :-

Are the heavy metals IN the plant tissue or stuck on the OUTSIDE. Solve 
that before getting too involved in the analysis.
