PGG visit to Portmore Garden and Kailzie Garden, Peebles

Portmore Garden

Set at 800’ in the wonderful Peebleshire countryside, the old Victorian gardens at Portmore have been recreated by the current owners Mr and Mrs David Reid over the past 30 years.

The 1½ acre Walled Garden, which is at its height between mid July to August, has herbaceous double borders, a potager, rose garden, pleached lime walk and ornamental fruit cages. There are large Victorian glasshouses which contain an Italianate Grotto. Outside the Walled Garden is the Water Garden leading to a Woodland Walk and below the house a formal garden of yew and box.

Kailzie Garden

Situated 2.5 miles from Peebles town centre on the B7062, Kailzie Gardens in the Scottish Borders are open 7 days a week throughout the year.

In their seasons, including the display of Snowdrops, Daffodils and sheets of Bluebells, the Gardens provide a rich variety of colour and charm for both the keen gardener, and for the visitor simply wanting to enjoy a beautiful garden in peaceful surroundings.
