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 Success Story!


A rainy start to the evening didn't deter visitors coming to our open garden evening which was a great success!  We thank all  our hard working helpers and all those who turned out and supported us. Dave, Di, Eve and Lindy worked so hard setting things up, serving and clearing up afterwards.  It couldn't have been done without them all. A special thank you to Sarah Winton and Theo in their bright yellow Daisy Bus  for their help driving around the area and advertising our event!  When we emptied our NGS tin, the total raised was £632.72!  Chris did an amazing job by putting 3 Roman columns in the Aspen Grove.  They look as if they've been there hundreds of years not 24 hours!  He also did an amazing job of lighting loads of night lights in jam jars and making the garden look its romantic and magical best and taking photos.  It was great to see old friends and colleagues and we congratulate everyone for making  the evening such a resounding success!!  Well done indeed!!  Check out: Chris's photos
