A group of varied village gardens situated on a south facing slope with views across the River Tweed to Melrose. Visit Allerly, the former home of David Brewster which has 100 year old espalier apple trees thought to have been gifted by Sir Walter Scott of Abbotsford. Also, stop by a small garden of Dahlia enthusiast. The garden also features a pond with fish. This year take the short walk over the chain bridge to visit gardens of Melrose and walk back for teas in Gattonside. Accessible by wheelchair for most of gardens.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
