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!

Ladder of Roses!

Chris's Paul Himalayan Musk is romping away up its ladder towards the oak flowering merrily as it goes. Some years ago,we rescued the oak tree from the Leylandii conifers which had invaded and overtaken it. Back then, many of its branches bore few leaves and it was ad to see an oak struggling.  Now it's a picture of health and vitality.  The old wooden ladders belonged to Chris and are now no longer safe to use.  In time, the idea is to have a waterful of fragrant roses cascading down the old wooden ladder.
