Welcome to Woodside, an award-winning plant centre & tearoom based in a lovely old walled garden, just north of Jedburgh in the wonderful Scottish Borders.

Woodside is owned and managed by gardening duo Emma and Stephen Emmerson, with help from an enthusiastic and dedicated team of staff. Located within a Victorian Walled Garden, Woodside is home to a large and well-stocked plant centre, filled with plants professionally grown at our own nursery site, as well as plants sourced from other British growers including the world famous David Austin Roses. Our cosy Birdhouse Tearoom overlooks our bird-feeding station, where you can enjoy up close views of our garden birds, whilst enjoying a cup of freshly made coffee and delicious home-baking, or a light lunch. On dry days our garden seating area is very popular with tearoom users as the south facing site makes it a sun trap! Dogs on leads are welcome in the garden seating area.

We officially opened the RSPB Homes for Wildlife Garden at Woodside in 2011, which has been built and is maintained by members of the Borders Branch of the RSPB. In that same year we exhibited our Homes for Wildlife Garden at Gardening Scotland and won a gold medal for our exhibit which was featured on BBC Scotland’s Beechgrove Garden.

We are also developing a vegetable garden at Woodside, which provides fruit, salads and vegetables for our Tearoom kitchen, as well as for our cafe at nearby Harestanes Visitor Centre (open Easter – October).

Woodside is open every day, and offers visitors a delightful experience, with our own unique take on a garden centre!

“I hope that you love Woodside as much as we all do, and that you too look forward to seeing the garden develop over time. Please do come in and say “hello” to me and my wonderful team who all make Woodside a really special place.”
