Malleny Garden 1Malleny Garden 2At Balerno, on the outskirts of Edinburgh, is a wonderful walled garden surrounded by woodland. Malleny Garden has around 150 varieties of rose including a National Collection of 19th century shrub roses.

The borders are wide and contain a large selection of shrubs and herbaceous perennials with two Victorian greenhouses sheltering some of the more tender plants.

Next to the garden stands Malleny House. The current house was built in 1637 but records of the site date back to 1330.

Four tall 400 year old yew trees, known as the Four Evengelists, dominate the entrance to the garden.
