The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and 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! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

New from Old - A Garden Hut

This weekend was spent recycling, restoring  and rebuilding an old discarded hut.  After the repairs came the creosote.  The hut was built on a subframe of 4" X 4"" timbers and a ply floor.  The roof was made from reclaimed and recut corrugated tin which already had a lovely old paint finish.  When up, it looked as if it had always lived behind the conifer!  Just a few things to finish off and hey presto!  More  dry garden storage!
