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!
Our final Late Night Shopping Event in the plant centre. Browse in our shop and enjoy our Christmas range of gifts, decorations and luxury foodie gifts. Select your cut or potted Christmas Tree from our range of Scottish grown trees, and purchase a fresh homemade Christmas Wreath. No need to book, just turn up and enjoy a leisurely browse. If you hand over a full loyalty card on any of these Late Night Shopping Evenings you can enjoy a free mulled punch (non-alcoholic version also available) and complimentary homemade mince pie.

How to Get in Touch
We love meeting people and caring for our plants, but we are not so keen on sitting in the office and working on a computer. Because of our lovely woodland setting internet signals are intermittent, so emails and social media requests may go un-answered. Please phone us during opening hours on 01835 830315 for all enquiries.
