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

Loadsa Leaves = Copious Compost

Yesterday morning was spent hoovering up  vast numbers of leaves and piling them on the compost heap.  Today, it was as if nothing had been done!   All this unseasonably warm weather means that the grass is still growing!!  Yes; that means mowing in November!!  Nothing  This is where they all end up here -
