Charity Garden Opening - Cally Gardens
Cally Gardens and specialist Plant Centre is a treasure trove of rare and exotic hardy plants gathered worldwide. The towering 18th-century walls of the former kitchen and pleasure garden of Cally House provide shelter for informal gardens created by the famous plant collector Michael Wickenden. Plantsman Kevin Hughes took ownership in 2018 and has since brought his own large collection of magnolias, daphnes and trilliums and has also expanded on many existing plant taxa, notably paeonia, meconopsis and nerines. As an ecologist and environmentalist, Kevin has adopted a philosophy of gardening with wildlife and is creating a new grassland planting whilst making the entire garden pesticide free with notable increases in biodiversity.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
