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

Yet more summer pruning!

Mountains of brash on the ground...
...and all compressed on to Clarence!

A single post can hardly do justice to all the pruning that's been going on at PTC so heres' a snatch of video and more photographic evidence. Luckily for us; Chris took most of the brash away as it would have taken forever to lug it all down to our bonfire area cut it all down and burn it all in an old oil drum - not to mention clearing up the mess left from dragging the brash from one end of the garden to the other.
