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????
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!
