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 professionally grown on site, as well as those sourced from other Scottish and UK growers. 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 was built 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. Since then, the local branch of the RSPB has sadly folded and we continue to manage that area for wildlife.

We are also developing a vegetable garden at Woodside, which provides fruit, salads and vegetables for our Tearoom kitchen, as well as regularly raiding my own vegetable garden for fresh produce.

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

Opening Times

From 5th April the plant centre and grocery shop will be open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm. The Tea Room is now open for eating in and there is plenty of space outside too. Booking is recommended for indoors - please phone 01835 830315 to book.

Due to rapid changes in legislation our website doesn't always reflect up-to-the-minute changes.

Keep safe everyone, and hopefully we can get back to some form of normality soon.
