Monday to Friday, 9.00 am to 4.00 pm
Located in a tranquil and relaxing setting, adjacent to Princes Park in Irlam, we are a year round, fully operational garden centre and work based training and day opportunities facility for people with disabilities and others looking to learn new skills.
We have a wide range of good quality plants, shrubs and trees and specialise in producing woodwork products, including tables, planters and bird boxes. Most of our plants and woodwork items have been produced by our day opportunities students under the supervision of our trained staff and volunteers.
We can produce items on request, just ask!

Our Work with the Friends of the Chat Moss and Little Woolden Moss Project
The "Friends" are a local group working with the Chat Moss Project and the Lancashire Wildlife Trust to restore 115 Hectares of a previous peat extraction site. They want to restore the mossland and create a living landscape for people as well as the many wetland species that are in rapid decline.
We are assisting by taking some cuttings from heathers, sowing cotton grass seeds (see left) and spagnum moss and propagating them with a view to re-planting them on site.
