Garden Centre Management (Hardcover) (Ken Crafer)
about this item
Garden center management has professionalized in recent years as garden centers have become more highly developed retail operations. Many students of horticulture are expected to go into retail management and so the topic has increasingly appeared on the further education curriculum.This book provides a practical approach backed up by management theory. The text covers consumer behavior, staff management, stock management, marketing and productivity. A strength of the structure is the way it pulls in management and marketing theory and the way that it is looking at the subject as a business, rather then being too focused on plants, which have many other books dedicated to them.
