Enjoy the Walled Gardens
The Walled Gardens historically were used to grow fruit and vegetables for the Castle Kitchen and to provide flowers for the house. This tradition continues today with peaches, grapes and plants grown in the original glass houses and soft fruit, vegetables and flowers in the fruit cage, vegetable garden and herbaceous border.
Floors Castle Gardens & Grounds reveal a new development project for 2016 and beyond. The Roxburghe Estate is investing in new garden features in the famous Victorian kitchen garden next to the magnificent herbaceous borders. Access to new areas will also be provided including the wonderful vinery and peach houses.
The grounds also include:

The Star Plantation
Truly a beautiful, mature woodland garden. Following a major storm in 1993, the Star Plantation was dramatically redesigned by Jim Marshall, former gardens advisor to the National Trust. Filled with ornamental trees, flowering shrubs, evergreens and bulbs, it is a delightful place to walk, play and ponder life.

Millennium Parterre
This lovely formal garden features the intertwining initials of the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe: G (Guy), V (Virginia) and R (Roxburghe). This was taken from a similar design on the Floors Castle linen made in 1900.
