Welcome to Monteviot House Gardens. These, extending to some thirty acres, surround the House itself, spilling down over lawn and through woodland onto the flood plain of the river Teviot below. The overall Garden comprises a series of differing gardens, designed to provide the visitor with planting interest from April until October.
The journey starts by the House with a small series of specialist areas including a Dwarf/Alpine/compact Rhododendron border, a mixed shrub and Herbaceous appetiser border (giving a taste of the extensive plantings in the main River garden) and a Japanese Acer and Pieris border underplanted with Candelabra Primulas ( a feature of Monteviot).
These specialist areas lead in turn to the breathtaking viewpoint over the main garden, the river Teviot and the heritage parkland beyond.
