BEECH HILL GARDEN CENTRE
Beech Hill Garden centre is a happy place, almost always the sound of laughter floating over this award winning centre which is beautifully located on the Middle Glanmire Road, overlooking Cork city and harbour.
But you don't go there for the laughs, although laughter is a tonic. Advice is freely given here and they are usually spot-on. Just recently I bought some plants there for a pebbled area and, well advised as usual, came away with some gorgeous colour, hopefully for years to come.
It is close to me and I can always pop over for a single plant or container or a ball of garden twine. Maybe I am going just for that laugh!
The well stocked centre is run by the COPE Foundation which provides a comprehensive range of services for 1600 children and adults with an intellectual disability.
