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!

From beautiful scented blooms to DEAD in a single harsh winter!  Ah well - it was only  grown from seed brought back from Oz 5 years ago.  A chance taken!  Now where are all the garden advisers promoting non-hardy, drought tolerant Mediterranean plants for our English gardens????
