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

Silver Medal Winning Lawn Mower Arrives!

Great excitement today as our silver medal prize in Britain's Best Gardeners' Garden arrived and we are now the very proud owners of a sparkling brand new Premium Cobra MX51SPH lawn mower!!  It just so happened that the lower lawn was just ready for mowing so it was put to instant and immediate use.  It's MUCH lighter that its Haytor predecessor and cuts like a dream. Having a Honda engine, it's SO easy to start and they are renowned for their easy starting reliability.  It has a very handy compartment (much like a glove compartment in a car) for storage.  Surely such a useful feature HAS to have been designed by a female?  We could hardly have won anything nicer or, in our case, more useful. 

thank you to the lovely people at Cobra for their generosity. 

 This mower has gone to the very best home!!
