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

Gardening on the move

On Sunday the whole team went over to plant potatoes for a friend who is recovering from a spell in hospital.  We couldn't bear to think of Steve worrying about his potato crop so here we are - his wife, Jan and son, Andrew with our usual garden trio; measuring out the rows, getting out the trenches, planting, labelling and earthing up.  The rain held off and we finished - was it 20 rows?  Lets hope for a speedy recovery and a bumper crop!

Half way down....
