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

How to prevent a door slamming.

The perfect answer for a door restraint.  This garage door doesn't lend itself to either a wedge at its base or being hooked open as it needs to be restrained at 90 degrees.   Designed and hand crafted by one esteemed builder, the door slides beneath the simple wooden drop hook which then drops down securing the door firmly.  To close, simply lift the hook - PERFICK!
