Gardens in Scottish Borders, Scotland

Scottish gardens are famous for their clear air and profuse flowers, partly because the growing season is compressed. Key Scottish gardens include Crathes Castle, Drummond Castle Gardens, Edinburgh Royal Botanic Garden. In addition to these gardens that are regularly open to the public, Scotland's Gardens Scheme facilitates the opening of mostly private gardens, normally inaccessible, to the public as a means of raising money for a selection of charities. The annual handbook "Gardens of Scotland", provides information on the 400 or so gardens that open for the Scheme.
