David and his wife, Alison, have been in the garden supply and nursery business for the last 13 years. David supervises the nursery and garden supply part of the business, while Alison does the administration and bookkeeping and oversees the landscaping projects. Their employees comprise two full-time gardeners, a part-time landscaping consultant and two part-time cashiers. The trading hours are as follows:
Mon – Wed 9 am – 6 pm
Thurs – Fri 9 am – 6 pm (9 am – 9 pm in summer)
Saturday 8 am – 6 pm
Sunday 10 am – 6 pm
The business is located in a main road, opposite a small suburban shopping centre that includes a supermarket, department store, café and 12 specialty shops. About 2 kilometres down the road is a large Bunning’s store.
