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

A Greenhouse on HM The Queen's Birthday!

The Hartley Botanic team hard at work.
PTC's Union Jack flew today for the occasion
Bruce, Pete, Darren & Gary from Hartley Botanic

Quite an auspicious occasion today!  HM The Queen's 90th birthday is quite a day to be having a new greenhouse! Hartley Botanic provided a team of 4 two of whom will return to tomorrow to finish off. It's already looking a-m-a-z-i-n-g and I'm totally thrilled - who wouldn't be?
