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

More vandalism!

Quelle damage!  What a good job the girls are soon to have new surroundings! The pond perimeter couldn't take this for very long.  I can't wait to get things up and running!  What chance do plants stand when they're up against 8 very strong clawed feet all day long?  If they're not having there tops pecked off, they're having their roots clawed up!  Still; never mind!  Materials have been ordered and works commence on Friday.  Until then, it's damage limitation!
