This historic, richly landscaped woodland garden has been in the care of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh since 1979, and hosts one of Scotland’s finest tree collections and an array of shrubs and herbaceous specimens that provide interest in every season. Located 8 miles south-west of Peebles in the Scottish Borders, the garden covers 65 acres and is a wonderful place to celebrate the beauty of the seasons. The plant collections include snowdrops in the spring, with azaleas, rhododendrons and Himalayan poppies in early summer. Dawyck is also home to the original ‘Dawyck Beech’, a strangely upright form of the common beech. Dawyck has a state of the art eco-friendly Visitor Centre, opened in 2008 with shop, café and studio. The garden is open from 1st February- 30th November. Admission Charges. Adult* £6.50, Concession* £5.50, Children Free*, Essential Carers Free. RBGE Members admitted free of charge.
