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!

Stars of Spring!

Aeonium arboreum var. atropurpureum "SCHWARZKOPF"
Aeonium arboreum var. atropurpureum "SCHWARZKOPF"

My Aeonium is flowering in the greenhouse and looks really quite stupendous!  Just what's needed on a grey winter's day - masses of sunshine yellow star-like  flowers and deepest crimson rosettes of leaves.  A big reward from a single plant in the middle of an English winter!
