About the garden
The Paxton Trust
New for 2023: The grounds and gardens of Paxton House were originally designed by Robert Robinson around 1756. The Palladian mansion sits in the heart of the estate, surrounded by colourful Edwardian-style herbaceous borders, extensive woodland, and riverside walks along the Tweed.
Maintained by a dedicated team of volunteers, the gardens feature lovely areas that create interest throughout the year, with stunning colourful displays. The herbaceous borders are particularly stunning throughout June, and spring-flowering bulbs give way to an array of hardy perennials.
The informal planting of some gardeners' favourites of all shapes and sizes provides a riot of colour. Meanwhile, the Well Garden is still a mass of pink and orange candelabra primulas among ferns, hostas and a splendid Viburnum plicatum. The variety of trees on the estate provides a spectacular show in autumn. A must-see garden, no matter the season.
