GARDENS & NURSERIES

Due to the warm climate, Dumfries & Galloway is home to a large number of fabulous gardens and nurseries full of beautiful plants and trees, many of which originate in the southern hemisphere

Walking through any of these gardens is a wonderful experience, as rare and exotic plants grow alongside more usual Scottish varieties.

The warming influence of the Gulf Stream, combined with free-draining and lime-free soil, make ideal growing conditions for many plants, including rhododendrons and azaleas.  

You might be surprised to see palm trees growing at Roughfirth House and throughout the region.  It's the diversity of the gardens that make our region so popular with garden lovers.  

There are tropical or formal gardens, walled gardens or those with sea views, gardens that are the settings for castles, stately homes or historic houses and small secret gardens.
