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

Things are really waking up

What a difference a few hours of sunshine make! Things are really waking up and, even drying up - a little. The Bergenias are in flower with just a few Pulmonarias. Chris even found a solitary Wood Anemone.  More Hellebores are springing up, Primroses are flowering and the snowdrops look really lovely.  Shrubs are budding up and, if this keeps up, it won't be long before we have some Camelias in bloom.  Now that really is a cue for the appearance of Jack Frost so let's hope they get their timing right this year.
