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.

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

Cally Gardens continues though, and will open for the 2017 season on Good Friday - 14th April.
