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!

Bringing in the tree fern

Just before the first serious frosts, the Two Chris's very kindly called around and lifted in the tree fern for the winter.  Not only lifted in, but lifted it up and on to its platform.  Because of its spread, it need to be elevated it otherwise it fills the conservatory.  The trouble was, it's put on so much height it was a bit of a struggle getting it under the cross beams.  Needless to say; it's pretty damned heavy!  Might need to consider a couple of alternatives next year!
