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

Spring in February?

In between the dark, mizzly rainy days, we have had the odd sunny and frosty day and, yes!  More Snowdrops and Hellebores are popping up in the Woodland Border. In the greenhouse, Hyacinths and Tete-a-tetes have popped up along with more Pansies and Polyanthus so, it's looking pretty colourful.  The Violas have battled with our winter weather and some have won, others are looking a little care worn!  The Irises are beginning to bloom - all in all, on these precious sunny days, it's looking really quite spring-like!
