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!

Walled Garden Visit

As Chris had swapped his usual Saturday to visit the 3 Counties (now very urbanised) Show, we took the opportunity to visit another NGS garden owned by Julia and Will Scott in Fort Royal, Worcester.  We found a delightfully private and tranquil reclaimed walled garden with very welcoming owners.  It was full of quirky topiary with a Wisteria to knock your socks off! We positively drooled over a beautiful avenue of pleached Lime trees a Hornbeam hedge to die for and herbs everywhere!  For more photos visit:

or, better still, check out the Yellow Book and explore this garden for real!
