[Priorwood Garden]

There are two gardens in Melrose owned by the National Trust for Scotland; Priorwood is a slightly disorganised riot of colour immediately south of Melrose Abbey. Flowers grown here are chosen specifically for flower drying and preservation, with a room dedicated to the art next to the garden shop. A large orchard possibly used to be part of the abbey kitchen garden, and today contains over 70 varieties of apple. There's also a fairly new woodland area, though this felt a bit untidy when we visited.
