Priorwood Gardens


Priorwood Gardens

Located immediately adjacent to the National Trust for Scotland shop you will find Priorwood Gardens, open from April until Christmas Eve and a voluntary contribution may be made for entry. These gardens once belonged to the Curle family who owned Priorwood House, now the Melrose Youth Hostel. Over the garden gates you can see the initials of James and Blanche Curle who moved into their family home when they married in 1904. Within the gardens there are many apple trees, some of which are direct descendants of those grown by the monks of the Abbey.



The Apple Orchard

The old potting shed has been turned into an exhibition area and within the gardens is a flower-drying business, which has acquired an excellent reputation. On leaving the gardens, turn left and head up Abbey Street towards Market Square.
