"Cally Gardens is a grand sight; thousands of species grown as well as you will ever see them, grouped harmoniously by a nurseryman with the eye of an artist - and the spirit of an adventurer."
Patricia Morison in Gardens Illustrated, January 1997

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.

A memorial will be held in Galloway in the summer, details to follow.

Cally Gardens continues though, and will remain closed as normal through the winter months.
