Cally Gardens and Specialist Plant Centre is a treasure trove of exotic and rare hardy plants gathered from around the globe. Rare and unusual plants can also be purchased from the nursery and expert advice is available from the owner.
The fine18th century walls of what was once the kitchen garden for Cally House, now provide shelter to 1000s 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 plantsman Kevin Hughes.
The garden, which was created by the famous plant collector Michael Wickenden was taken on by Kevin Hughes in 2018. 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 Nerines.
As an ecologist and environmentalist, Kevin aims to make Cally a haven for birds, insects and all things wild. Cally is on its way to becoming a fully organic and low impact garden. Watch out for the orchard lawns that are now on their way to becoming flower meadows, and the paths that are being transformed into living walkways.
