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

The BIG Clean-Up

After all the building work that's been going on around this garden, we thought it was about time for a major clean-up.  In the absence of Chris or, more to the point, his cement mixer; piles of left over sand and cobbles were removed, off cuts of timber stacked away and all rubble, cement bags, plastic  etc etc disposed of in order for our Chris to blast on to the scene with a really meaty power washer.  Even the greenhouse shivered in the sunshine!
The results were pretty rewarding and lovely new Creosote Yard was unveiled along with a new terrace.  Of course the cobbles have yet to be transported down to the pond edge but, that can wait for another day!
