A group of varied gardens situated on a south facing slope with views across the River Tweed to Melrose and its famous Abbey. Gattonside is known for its roses and fruit trees, once the fruit growing slopes for the Abbey monks. Walled gardens, herbaceous borders, fruit cages and vegetable gardens. Old and new gardens mixed together in this pretty village. Beautiful listed trees - copper birch, oak trees, fruit trees and espalier trees within the village and gardens - some dating back to the time of Walter Scott!
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
