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!

Prunus Pruning in the Dark!







Sometimes, there just aren't enough hours of daylight!!  When the days are overcast and it seems like dusk all day long, we have to resort to winter pruning by torchlight.  It was only around 5pm when this was taken.  Chris was doing some winter pruning in a Prunus.  We didn't imagine actually using the uplighting for pruning purposes!
