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

More Winter Arrivals

Although not nearly was warm as predicted, we did have some weekend sunshine.  Consequently, more and more flowers are springing into life. Bees have been out and about searching for pollen - head over heels in some cases!  For more winter arrivals, see:  Winter Flower Story
Whilst enjoying the sunshine, the gardeners were busy doing rather more mundane jobs such as creosoting the tool shed and the Pear Hut and giving 'Kay's Seat' and the frieze around the top of the Pear Hut another coat of green paint.  After 2 coats, things are looking pretty smart once again.  We also moved a couple of shrubs and trees......which we meant to do back in the autumn!  Hopefully we were in the nick of time!
