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

Life at PTC is still as busy as ever and there has been little time for blogging these past couple of weeks.  Despite freezing weather conditions, snow and a continued lack of plans, drawings or blueprints; creations continue to roll off the Chris Genever production line.  He has been built a veranda with a fab shingled roof, a new greenhouse path and now a wall. He has also finished the paving in the new herb garden - complete with its star burst central feature (an idea to use the stone off cuts)
