The gardens at Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!

Looks like a Pagan fertility rite!


After removing and replacing 16 tons of soil; it was only fitting to have the Casting of the Soil Ceremony now that the vegetable plot is all planted and things are actually growing.  Not that we needed an excuse for a G &T!  The soil casting was the original sample supplied by David Marsh of Stownhall

We're now hoping for bumper crops!
