The gardens at Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & 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!

................the potatoes are chitting away happily in the tool shed window!   This year, I have strayed from Arran Pilots and gone for this new variety.  This straying from a lifelong tradition is due solely to Steve's influence.  If I had more more room, I'd grow more varieties.  I hope these taste as good as Steve's did last year!
