Woodside plant centre Nr Jedburgh

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 sourced from Scottish and UK growers. In the summer of 2020 we added a grocery shop and new for 2021 is our aquatics section.

We offer personal shopping appointments between 9 and 10am. If you know you would like additional help in selecting plants for a particular project, or need advice on which pump or size of liner you require, we are happy to take appointments. Just call on 01835 830315 to book your time.

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. 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 now also offer a takeaway service.

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