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

Result of the Genever Bonsai Demonstration

Before I go on to the next post, here's a quick photo of the finished Acer (from the previous post) all potted up and back in position - it's the one in the blue pot!  The photo definitely does not give a true idea of either the scale or weight of it.  The pot is about 2'sq and I can't imagine the weight when filled with wet compost and a tree.  The Acer on its left is about twice the size and will fall due for the same treatment next year.................Paynes cranes spring to mind.
