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!

Hurrah - Rain at long last!

Thank goodness for some rain!!  We haven't had the really heavy downpours like other areas but at long last, we have steady rain for 24 hours.  The rain chain loved it but the painters doing the outside window frames weren't quite so enthusiastic!  The garden was really desperate and many Hydrangeas were wilting and looking very sorry indeed. Hopefully this will perk them up. Camellias and Witch Hazels also hate drying out and this garden is just too big to water everywhere.
