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!

April Frost Damage

Just lately, we've been having desert weather!  Warm sunny days with clear frosty nights.  Sadly, the Camelias have suffered and it's not a pretty sight.  An even worse sight is the Wisteria on the main house.  The sparrows have stripped it bare of every single flower bud.  It's not as if they don't steal all the food put out for song birds!  Where are all the people who say their sparrow numbers are dropping?  They can everyone of ours - gladly!
