    Harmony Garden is a walled garden in the Scottish Borders town of Melrose.

    Run by the National Trust for Scotland and the sister garden of Priorwood, Harmony Garden is set around an early 19th-century house. The house (not open to visitors but available to rent as holiday accommodation), was built by Melrose joiner Robert Waugh, who named it Harmony after the Jamaican pimento plantation where he had made his fortune.

    The house looks out onto two acres of land, with a delightfully tranquil walled garden comprising herbaceous and mixed borders, vegetable and fruit areas, and a rich display of spring bulbs. There is also a small croquet lawn.

    Harmony Garden has excellent views of Melrose Abbey and the Eildon Hills and is a short from its sister garden, Priorwood.
