Local Business Hot Spot #1: Vadoulis Garden Centre

In support of local business, we recently interviewed Local Business Hot Spot #1:  Vadoulis Garden Centre – owner Milton Vadoulis.

Located at 560 Main North Road, Gawler, the well-established and highly regarded Vadoulis Garden Centre has been family operated for an astonishing 57 years.

Milton Vadoulis, Owner of Vadoulis Garden Centre, has been running the business for the past 40 years and has enjoyed every minute servicing the local area of Gawler and the broader region. We interviewed Milton recently, and on the continual growth of the business, he says, “we have grown so much since the 1960s that we now have 30 employees”. Milton shares his love for Gawler and importantly the people that live here. He also enjoys the local events with his all-time favourite being The Gawler Show which attracts 1000s of people every year. If there was one thing he’d like see happen in Gawler Milton says “I’d love to see the river area developed into a recreational hub”.

When speaking of the Centre, situated on a massive 4,000sqm of land, he delightfully shared with us all that it has to offer; including garden care, garden design service, pots, outdoor furniture, giftware, homeware, seedlings, seeds, BBQ and entertaining items, indoor and outdoor plants and even a Café!
