Cally Biodiversity Gardens

Date: Saturday 25 May 2024

Cally Biodiversity Gardens, Cally Avenue, Gatehouse of Fleet, Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland, DG7 2DJ. Cally Biodiversity Gardens will be opening from 10am until 5pm on Saturday 25th May 2024 for Scotland’s Garden Scheme. A one hectare walled garden containing an outstanding collection of rare and common plants from around the world assembled to create naturalistic habitat for our native fauna. Some plants can be found in no other Scottish Garden whilst many are first introductions to gardens in the UK. This is an example of gardening harmoniously with nature where declining birds such as Garden warbler can be seen nesting amongst Himalayan Poppies & American Prairie plants whilst lucky people might glimpse Harvest mice in our unique Grassland Ecology Garden. We use no artificial fertiliser or pesticide and this is also true of the plants we grow for our plant sale area which has a wide range of less common plants. Directions: From Dumfries take the Gatehouse of Fleet turning off the A75, follow the B727 and turn left through the Cally Palace Hotel gateway from where the gardens are well signposted. A regular bus service will stop at the end of Cally Drive if requested.For more information, please click here.
