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

New Laurel Hedge

Chris nails on the last rail
Saturday saw the fencing and the new Laurel  hedge finished.  Being behind the camera means it appears that Chris does all the work alone.  Not true! We also removed a relic of a variegated holly.  It was a shame because it provided such  superb winter colour but was a really bad shape and in the wrong place, Hopefully, we can plant up our now enlarged border next week.  I will need to set up a seep hose in order to keep it well watered for its first year.  Now - all it needs to do is GROW!
The finished project
