Planthunter - A Celebration of Michael Wickenden

Exhibition: The Mill on the Fleet, Gatehouse of Fleet
1 July -3 September 2017

The Mill developed the exhibition Planthunter with Michael back in 2011 and is re-showing the exhibition in tribute to his work as a plant hunter and the development of Cally Gardens.  It focuses on a selection of his expeditions up until that point and is full of many fine photographs that he took while on expedition of the plants of course, but also of the landscapes and the peoples he encountered.

In that regard Michael was also a collector of art and artefacts while on his travels and the exhibition will show a slection of pieces which he brought back with him.

Massive Plant Sale

Due to circumstances the usual annual catalogue did not proceed this year.  As a result plants intended for the catalogue are available from the garden.  

Anyone interested in a larger order should email us the details at least a week in advance of their visit and we will try to get it sorted.  This would be collections only and payment on collection, cash or cheque please.

An up to date plant list for the Garden is available here as a pdf.

Michael Wickenden : 1955-2016

Michael Wickenden

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Michael Wickenden of Cally Gardens, Scotland. Michael died on the 11th October 2016, whilst trekking in northern Myanmar (Burma). He was 61.

A great gardener, plantsman, explorer, photographer, teacher and friend; an inspiration to so many. He will be hugely missed.
