About Harmony Garden
Harmony Garden is a tranquil walled garden comprising lawns, herbaceous and mixed borders, vegetable and fruit, and a rich display of spring bulbs. The garden's texture, fragrance and colour change throughout the year making it a place to return to again and again. The grounds are set around an early 19th-century house (available as holiday accommodation), built by a Melrose joiner, who named it after the Jamaican pimento plantation where he made his fortune.
 
About the area
Melrose's history dates back to the Bronze Age. There is still a scattering of brochs in the countryside around the town, possibly a legacy of the Romans for managing the rich sheep grazing on the moors.
 
The town has a good selection of shops including those selling knitwear, tweeds, books and antiques. There is also a variety of restaurants serving classic Scottish fare in cosy surroundings.
 
In June, Harmony Garden plays host to the annual Borders Book Festival, whose past attendees include Ian Rankin and Sir David Frost.
 
Things to do

  • A trip to Melrose isn't complete without a wander round the Abbey. Although portions of the 12th century structure survive, the magnificent rose-stone building dates from the 1385 rebuilding. Look out for the chapter house, where Robert the Bruce's heart is said to be buried, or the statue of Scottish medieval wizard, Michael Scott.

  • Visit nearby rustic Priorwood Garden to learn about the craft of dried flower work; pick your own blooms to order and take home.

  • Walk part of the St Cuthbert's Way, following in the footsteps of the eponymous saint. The whole route takes four days and leads across the mudflats to Lindisfarne. The Melrose to St Boswell's section is 7.5 miles each way. (stcuthbertsway.info)
