Park or Garden
Queen Mary's House Gardens, Jedburgh
The gardens have descendants of the original pear trees planted in the area adjacent to Jedburgh Abbey which supplied fruit to the London Market in the early 1800s.
To ensure that the original stock continued into the new century, a number of pear trees were grafted, grown on and planted in the gardens. Within the gardens stands Mary Queen of Scots House, a museum and visitor centre that tells the story of the tragic queen.
The gardens have beautiful flower displays within well maintained lawns.
