“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 Cally Gardens is a 2.7 acre walled garden built around 1760 that I have restored over 30 years. The restoration and maintenance has been paid for entirely by selling ornamental plants produced here. We are open to the public from April to October. Please see www.callygardens.co.uk for more information. Thank you. Michael Wickenden 2016/05/07 (Michael died in October 2016 while on a plant hunting trip) Plant List 2016… Read more »
The walled garden, known as ‘The Cottage Garden’ dates from the 1760s. A wide range of fruit is grown and includes a collection of 40 varieties of pear, with many heritage varieties. There are several glasshouses, one of which houses a 200 year old Cannon Hall Muscat vine.
Both the Southern and Northern walled gardens have been restored, the former to productive fruit and vegetables and the latter to a cherry orchard. The gardens are used for community volunteering, education programmes and school visits. Open to the public on certain advertised days.
