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!

Hen Damage!

The girls discovered my beetroot!  Looks like a plague of locusts descended - quite biblical I s'pose.  Oh well; the good side is: these beetroot won't bolt now!  Only the leaves eaten - no harm to the actual beet.
