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 Step Closer

Richard...
..demonstrates his theodolite!!

The replacement greenhouse is now another step closer following a visit from Darren & Richard at Hartley Botanic. They came and checked on final levels and dimensions and gave Chris gold for the best greenhouse base! They not only admired his accuracy but also the details in the brickwork. We now need Chris to approve their construction! They even managed to dodge more vicious squalls and have promised to send photos of the manufacturing process & also shelving details.  Roll on 18th when construction commences!!
