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

Guess how many bottles................!

Having been unable to find anyone local to press our apples, we took them up to Shugborough.  Amazing to think we live in the middle of a cider apple orchard but can't juice our own fruit!  Anyway, Tim Nicholls will juice, pasteurise and bottle the juice from these very apples.  The $64000 question many bottles of apple juice will we have????  Check out Tim's website while you're coming up with a guess!
