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!

Loads of Lovely Lavender!





The lavender is looking especially pretty and is absolutely alive with bees and hover flies.  I must pick some for lavender shortbread.  Our lavender border began life as self set seedlings in Mrs. Slingsby's gravel.  Chris's job was to remove all the unwanted seedlings and we got lucky!!
