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!

The Battle Continues!

A tidy row of reduced Leylandii
Chris & Kyle have been slaving with their arboricultural reduction and do they ever have mountains of brash down on the ground!!  It doesn't look much from a distance but close up, it's tons and tons!!  Kyle also took a couple of shots from an unusual angle which shows their neat handy work and the fact that we really do live in an orchard!  Meanwhile, the Under Gardener (and Hunter Gatherer!) is fed up with all this wet weather as he no longer has the kitchen to himself on gardening days. Head Gardener has been making soups and lunches for the arboriculturalists and disrupting his routine because it's just too wet for her to work in the garden!!
