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

Another little seasonal job.

My order of seed potatoes arrived the other day and they're now chitting in egg trays on a windowsill in the tool shed.  If it ever dries up enough to dig the vegetable patch, I might even be able to plant them!  Again, they're Lady Christl - it's a weird spelling but last year's were so deliciously waxy and cropped so well, they were even better than Arran Pilots and I never thought I'd ever say that.  They might not look very exciting but they're all part of the changing seasons in the garden.
