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!

We could hardly go to France without admiring their bedding styles.  After all - they invented it!!  I did like the softer and blowsier styles of planting in Calais.  Even on a dull and blustery evening, the borders were alight with colour and positively zinging!
