Details

Cally Gardens and Specialist Plant Centre is a treasure trove of exotic and rare hardy plants gathered from around the Globe. The towering 18th century walls of what was once the kitchen and pleasure garden for Cally Palace now provide shelter to 1000’s of rare and exotic plants. This Garden is a must for any plant collector and the Specialist Plant Centre is bursting with rare and unique plants cultivated by the acclaimed nurseryman Kevin Hughes.

The Gardens are open Thursday through to Sunday, 10am – 5pm from 1st March – 31st October.

Garden Admission £5.00:  Children free.

Nursery is free to visit.

 

The informal garden which was created by the famous plant collector Michael Wickenden is now in the care of the plantsman and ecologist Kevin Hughes. Kevin took ownership of Cally in 2018 and is working hard to get the gardens back in shape and ensure that the 4,000 plus plant collection are a delight for all to enjoy. Since arriving Kevin has brought his own stunning collection of Magnolias, Daphnes and Trilliums and also has added more collections including Galanthus, Paeonies and a wonderful array of Nerine’s.

As an ecologist and environmentalist Kevin has decided to make Cally a haven for birds, insects and all things wild. Cally is on it’s way to becoming a fully organic and low impact garden. Watch out for the formal lawns that are now on their way to becoming flower meadows and the paths that are being transformed into living walkways.
