The gardens of 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!

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 -
