We greatly enjoyed our visit to these gardens. Some of the views across the river are stunning. The garden is composed of very different areas each with features of special interest.
There is also an ongoing program of developments to add interest.
Definitely worth a visit whether you are a keen gardener or not.

Beautiful place to spend some time. I have just had knee surgery and was unable to make it all the way round so Ian the Head Gardener took me in his buggy which I very much appreciated he told me about different parts of the garden and nothing was a bother to him. Gardens are beautifully kept and well maintained and will look forward to the new development which is in progress.
Thanks again Ian and Jamie.

I happened upon this lovely garden on my way to spend a weekend in the Borders with some friends and thought it was absolutely wonderful. The selection of differently landscaped individual gardens extend over a beautifully set out riverside location. The whole visit was made an entirely welcoming experience from the helpful guide map and we met the head gardner who explained some of the joys and challenges of working on such a large and varied site. I would highly recommend a visit as I'd say it is equally appealing to gardners and non-gardeners.

Originally went to see the Orchid Show - very interesting BUT the real surprise and delight were the Gardens. If ever you are in the area DON'T miss making a visit - you wont be disappointed !! There is so much to see and enjoy for both enthusiastic gardeners and those who just enjoy wandering thru wonderful gardens in a picturesque spot on the banks of the River Teviot. The Head Gardener was genuinely enthusiastic about the place - which is a real credit to him and the other gardeners who obviously work so hard to keep the thirty acres looking so immaculate and so full of interesting plants, shrubs and trees. Even though towards the end of the season, there was still so much of interest to see - be prepared to spend many happy and informative hours in this garden. Quite amazing were the number of plants labelled (not always the case in many gardens) so you are able to note what you like for future reference. I am sure that whenever you visit there will be plenty to interest all the family - but particularly the keen (but amateur) gardeners who wish that their plot could be extended to include many of the wonderful plants displayed here. We shall return to enjoy this wonderful garden throughout all the seasons. Excellent value for money !
