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!

Return Surprise!

Main long wall
Main gable end wall
After a bit of a trip 'up north', we came back to an amazing surprise. We found a beautifully finished greenhouse base complete with a dog's tooth course of bricks beneath the blues on the 'front' side.  Chris had even found time to lay slabs between the base and the sleeper retaining wall.  How does he do it?  Even the door thresholds were all finished! We can't wait for Hartley Botanic to do their bit now! Josh Heywood, their design engineer has been most attentive when it comes to design detail and dimensions and we await their visit tomorrow. They have promised for installation to commence on 18th April. Hopefully, that will give us enough time to finish off before our first open garden event on 1st May (shiver!)
