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!

Wichenford Open Gardens 2013

DAY 1

The Teas Team!

What a perfect day!!  Warm sunshine after the hassle of cutting hedges in the rain!! Poor Brian painting the summerhouse and the rain washing off the paint faster than he could paint more on!  At one time, it looked as if someone had tipped a churn of milk over the windows!  He stuck at it despite everything and it looked pretty good.  Chris and I worked on the Yew hedge until 8:30pm and it did look pretty amazing.  A quick blow round before the team arrived to serve teas and placing cushions just about everywhere and we were pretty much ready. 


Chris was under very strict instruction to take photos of visitors in the garden this time and not shots of an empty garden!  This time we found pictures with people on!!

His photos can be seen at:  


Meanwhile, I have to get ready for today's invasion......................!
