"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
DELAYED OPENING TO SEASON
Sorry! Cally Gardens is still under several inches of snow and will not open on Easter Saturday as advertised
- for the first time in 27 years.
We hope to open on Saturday 6th April, and to continue sending orders by post the following week.
