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

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!
