Priorwood gardens are the amazing walled gardens that are maintained by the NTS near Melrose Abbey. They are very beautiful and very calm. I was completely enamored of the round bushes, and spent a few minutes bouncing on them while Mark took pictures. The garden contains vegetables and fruit trees as well as ornamental plants. I believe that at one time these gardens would have been part of the Abbey grounds themselves. The gardens specialize in flowers for drying.
