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

Lemon Grass

I was given these -  Bheemul called it Citronella and I explained that I associated that name Citronella with bugs and outdoor candles. I have a strong feeling it's Lemon Grass (Cymbopogon citratus)  I reckon the greenhouse is warm enough and it had quite a bit of root.  Served as in infusion with ginger - it tastes delicious so let's hope it thrives!  (I think I need to grow the ginger next)
