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!

Wood Preservation


Elsewhere in the garden it's been preservation and tidying up! Most of the bare wood has had a coat of creosote including the barn and the Herb Garden fence - it's a good job I like the smell of it!!  I think I could have been a professional wood preserver in a previous life! Again, my collection of boards comes in useful for catching drips.  You might notice the Dogwood stems awaiting re-use as plant supports.
