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

Another Successful Garden Visit

The weekend saw another garden visit - this time by the Black Pear Gardening Club of Worcester.  Chris swapped from afternoon to morning so at 8am prompt (yawn!), it was mission on!!  I mowed and edged, weeded, tidied whilst he trimmed the Berberis, cut the Yew hedge and even gave the sofa a haircut.  32 club members came on a sunny Saturday afternoon.  Lucky me!!  Dave & Di came over and served the teas and cakes and even washed up!!! Another £191.00 was made for the National Gardens Scheme.  Afterwards a bottle of fizz was duly enjoyed before a dinner of beef puff pastry pinwheels with Arran Pilot new potatoes, Greyhound cabbage and Early Onward peas all straight from the garden - deeeeeeliciousness!  A good and very worthwhile day all round.
